From the Back Cover:

Who killed creativity? Was it X.S. Stress in the executive's office with 'crushing coercion'? Or was it Beau Rock-Racy in the accountant's office with 'noxious negativity'? Your help is needed to crack an unsolved crime: creative thinking is declining at an alarming rate —how can we get it back?

A recent survey of CEOs revealed that creativity is considered the most important quality in leadership. Who Killed Creativity? investigates how companies, leaders, managers and individuals can build (or rebuild) a culture of innovation by fostering creative thinking and problem-solving—finding better solutions faster. Through exploring such intriguing questions as 'Are bully bosses psychopaths in disguise?' and 'Why does the future of civilisation lie in a garbage dump in Mexico?', this book offers a compelling tale with a novel twist.

In a fascinating forensic approach, carefully researched facts are blended with humorous anecdotes to reveal the creative thinking killers. Practical tools and case studies then demonstrate how everyone can rewire their brain using seven essential creative thinking strategies. Who Killed Creativity? will help you resuscitate the spirit of innovation at all levels.
