Out of Our Minds: Learning to be Creative
Author(s): Sir Ken Robinson
Ken Robinson argues that organisations everywhere are trying to fix a problem that originates in schools and universities. Many people leave education with no idea what their creative abilities and strengths are. In a powerful and original way, he says why this is and what organisations and individuals can do immediately to recover their creative talents.

Some of the heavier academic content has been stripped out and content has been adapted for more consumer/think-piece market.
