Source Book for Creative Problem Solving is a book that is likely to find an audience amongst educators, executives, software developers, librarians, and anyone else whose livelihood involves the management, generation, or transmission of ideas. Perhaps the highest praise one could say of this book is that the production of the book evidences a deep appreciation of the book's subject matter. This new anthology of writings on creativity encapsulates a lot of the research and studies on this subject that have taken place in the past fifty years. The central theme of these writings is on creative problem solving, the application of creative insight to the solution of practical problems. The authors of the selections vary quite widely in background, ranging from psychotherapists and philosophers to executives and entrepreneurs. As with any anthology, this book begs to be browsed. The table of contents includes some article titles that beckon temptingly. "Ownership and Converging: Essential Ingredients of Creative Problem Solving," "Information Processing and New Ideas - - - Lateral and Vertical Thinking," "Creativity Techniques in Product Planning and Development: A View from West Germany," "Japanese Creative Problem Solving Methods," "Computer-Enhanced Creativity Software: Individual Programs," "Let's Be an Ice Cream Machine: Creative Dramatics," and, "Creative Evaluation, Development and Use of Ideas." - Thoughts on the Nature of Creativity - Creativity in Education - Computer Enhanced Creativity - Creative Dramatics
