This blog will discuss the current issues in creativity by the graduate students at the International Center for Studies in Creativity at Buffalo State. Tina has come to the field from an unusually eclectic background. Starting with a medical Ph. Perhaps not surprisingly, she has written books on a range of different topics, including popular science books on the chemistry of cooking, practical books on neuroscience designed to develop the brain, and a book of advice for young people on how to prepare for professional life.

She certainly has an appropriately broad range of experiences to draw from in her current role. As well as teaching on creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship at the Department of Management Science and Engineering, she also teaches at the well-known Hasso Plattner Institute of Design also known as the d.

Seelig is a popular teacher who has been awarded for her ingenuity in the classroom and excellence in teaching. What is especially fascinating is that she also describes the sorts of unique exercises that she has devised to help teach about creativity.

The result is a smooth flow of practical ideas delivered in a conversational style that draws in the reader in. The narrative interweaves both solid theoretical foundations and useful applicable ideas on how to develop creativity. Even the title itself is ingenious! She goes on to explain how the word ingenius actually comes from the Latin word, ingenium, which refers to a natural capacity or innate talent.

She is adamant that creativity can be taught and developed, just as muscles can be developed through exercise. Having read a number of books in the field of creativity, I discovered that some of the stories and content were not original, which I would have hoped for in a book like this. Also, a number of areas that I think are also important to creativity were omitted.

Although there were some vague references to creative thinking skills, for example, there was no clear link to the model. Some of the four Ps of creativity Person, Product, Process and Press are alluded to, but not all are covered consistently, which made it feel like the content was a little patchy.

Seelig says herself that she came up with the model after writing the main content of the book, and unfortunately that is the way it feels as you read the book. I would like to have seen the main content of the book more clearly linked to the model as the book progresses so that the connections and theoretical flow is clearer.

Having said that, if the book was designed to be an introduction to the field and merely to incite interest and motivation it achieved this purpose very well. I was drawn to the book originally for this interesting integrated approach to the internal and external factors, and I will certainly draw from the model in my own work on how to build a constructive culture for creative thinking and innovation.

For the more learned reader in the field, there are still plenty of useful ideas and anecdotes that should inspire thoughtful reflection and motivation for action.

The book is a valuable addition to the literature. References Seelig, T.
