Creativity requires skills. Idea-Links teaches them.
What if you could become noticeably more creative by learning and practicing just two skills–the same skills highly creative people have employed most of their lives? Now you can with Idea-Links, the first book that puts greater creativity firmly in your control.
Unlike books that promise to unleash your creative genius overnight, Idea-Links teaches you skills that build your creativity steadily over time.
One of those skills is extracting and collecting idea-links: the transferable principles that help you connect one thing to another. The more idea-links you own, the more connections you make–and the more creative you become. Now, becoming more creative truly is an attainable goal.
