Editorial Reviews

Review

“A signal testimonial to the creative spirit…A brilliantly incisive exploration of the creative 'encounter'―the coming to grips of the healthily committed creative artist or thinker with his sociocultural background and with his own dangerously Promethean impulses.”
- Publishers Weekly

“A lucid and highly concentrated analysis of the creative process…[May] describes the requisites for the creative encounter and the moment of the 'breakthrough.'”
- Saturday Review
--This text refers to the paperback edition.

2.0 out of 5 stars Overall quality of the book is cheap and horrible.
Reviewed in India on August 20, 2021
This review is not regarding the content of the book, but of the quality of the product. Straight to the point, this is one of the worst quality I have encountered ever. This literally feel like a cheap carbon copy of the actual book; it is so clumsy and feels like it will fall apart anytime. Although, this doesn't affect my reading of the book in anyway, I'm writing this review so that the authorities concerned may be made aware of this problem and can consequently avoid the aforementioned issue with future customers for whom the quality of book is a crucial factor.
