This exercise book is a follow up to the book: The Secret of the Highly Creative Thinker: How to make connections others don't. Whereas The Secret of the Highly Creative Thinker was based on a dynamic balance of theory, technique and exercises, this book is purely an exercise book - a hands-on workbook, the perfect place to get your hands dirty and take a serious dive into exercises that strengthen your ability to see and make connections. Although this exercise book follows the principles of The Secret of the Highly Creative Thinker: How to make connections others don't, it works perfectly as a stand-alone publication. This book is for those who would like to enhance their creativity. It can be used for: development of creative capacity; training of the underlying mechanisms in creative thinking; educational purposes; increased idea production. This book is for those who loved The Secret of the Highly Creative Thinker, who can't wait to dive into more creativity exercises created to enhance their innate creativity through seeing connections.
