Posted by / 17 October, 2014 / Categories: BOOKS LIVRES / -


You may be familiar with Michael Gelb through his New York Times bestseller How to Think Like Leonardo da Vinci (1998). Michael has just released a new book Creativity On Demand: How to Ignite and Sustain the Fire of Genius , I feel that it is his most powerful work yet.

 In preparing for this book, he brought these passions together by interviewing many of the world’s leading masters of these internal energy arts. He asked, “What is your most powerful practice that the average person can do in 20 minutes or less to empower their creative energy?” Michael took the best of their responses and then integrated them with the creativity methods he teaches to executives from companies like Genentech, Microsoft and Nike. The result is profound: a practical, evidence-based approach to igniting and sustaining your creative fire.

Do moments of inspiration have to be few and far between—or can you develop the ability to access your deepest creativity any time? Michael Gelb has discovered the missing key that allows genius to flourish: an open, reliable connection to the vital life energy we all possess.  “The practices for accessing energy have been developed for thousands of years in yoga, martial arts, and Chinese medicine,” Gelb says.  “I’ve asked today’s greatest living masters of these arts to contribute their most effective practices for cultivating creative energy—in a way that the average person can do in 20 minutes or less.” With Creativity On Demand, Gelb teaches a series of simple and potent practices to clear blockages and open the flow of creative energy.  He then reveals how these techniques can be integrated with the renowned creative mindset and creative process tools he’s taught to individuals and organizations worldwide.  The result is Michael Gelb’s most powerful work yet on unlocking our potential to innovate and achieve.

Creativity on Demand is the result of a lifetime devoted to facilitating creativity in people and organizations. Whether your own interest is in cultivating the creative potential of other people or connecting more deeply with your personal talents and possibilities, it offers not only the inspiration, but also the practical guidance to help you make it happen. ~   Sir Ken Robinson, Ph.D. from the Foreword

Wisdoms to Live By: Expressed by Timeless Proverbs

As Dave Tanner puts it: ” I was motivated to write this book because a proverbial wisdom that I quoted to my fourteen-year-old grandson impacted his thinking on how to stay out of future trouble in school.

This book describes 40 wisdoms expressed by timeless proverbs, short sayings that are of value in how we think about four aspects of life: the way we behave; actions we take; insights we have; and general thoughts.

Examples of proverbial wisdoms that are highlighted in the book include: do unto others as you would have other do unto you; action speaks louder than words; positive thinking aids all endeavors; and it takes two to tango. The book describes the meaning of each proverbial wisdom, origin, and examples illustrating practical value. Overall, the book is organized in a way for people of all ages to think about the many aspects of everyday life.”
