View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Why do so many modern creative geniuses like Albert Einstein, Pablo Picasso and Charles Darwin hail from the West instead of the East? Why do the Chinese, who were the first people in the world to use paper, printing and gunpowder, lag behind their Western counterparts in modern discoveries and inventions? You can find the answers to these questions and more in this book, which argues that Asians are less creative than their Western counterparts because of their cultural background. Also included are practical pointers on how to be more creative in everyday life.
