Bryan has crafted a book that inspires by sharing how a diverse range of creative geniuses worked. He researched a broad range of talents, distilled what he learned and translated that into practical tips you can use.
Better yet, it's short enough to be digestible. I can't wait for part 3.
Great job, Bryan! Thanks for sharing your work with us.
I've been enjoying Bryan Collins' writing for a few months now. To me, it's like listening to a good friend. He gently moves readers through inspirational ideas, positive and creative role models (Henri Matisse, Austin Kleon, Hugh Howey, Steve Jobs, Gary Vaynerchuk, and my favorite Albert Einstein to name a few), and real-life examples of the struggles you'll face trying to come up with creative ideas.
Bryan takes the simple subject of creativity and uniquely explains how it's not something magical that only comes to certain people. But something everyone can easily seek out and master. He gives excellent examples of how you can create opportunities that will open your own paths of creativity. Whether you're a writer, musician, an artist, school teacher, or stay-at-home mom looking to make money on the side. The power of creativity is in your hands. And Bryan has written the handbook on how to make extraordinary things happen.
The techniques in this book are not quick fixes; they are things you can do every day to open yourself up to creative opportunity until it becomes automatic. I seriously wish these books (Books 1, 2, and 3) were also available in print. I like highlighting and indexing my books so I can refer back to them for inspiration whenever I get stuck. I’m very happy to have received this book as a gift. It’s well written and chock full of helpful ideas that will inspire your own creativity.
A powerful, concise guide to harnessing all the ideas floating around in your head. I especially enjoyed Chapter 3, "Change Your Perspective," an assembly of beautifully written vignettes from history and the author's life, which helped me approach my current project with a fresh plan. Perhaps the book's only weakness is that it aims broadly to all artists, engineers, inventors, thinkers, and so on, rather than narrowing its focus to one group and truly speaking to that group's needs. Definitely worth reading and applying to your pursuits and endeavors. I received a free copy for an honest review.
I received this book as a gift, and am glad I did. Bryan's style is personable and chatty, and his ideas come from a fresh point of view. Not everything in the book is new, but is well-presented and a joy to read. I won't give away the information and ideas, except to say you'll come away from this easy read feeling hopeful and inspired.
Thank you, Bryan, for writing another book that gives the (in my case) writer a nudge toward more creativity. I'll be reading the book again when I need a boost.
