THIS BOOK has become essential reading for anyone-whether in marketing, advertising, sales, finance, or the pure artist-who is seriously interested in the creative business of generating good ideas. It is a concise, clear, but above all practical book, and all those willing to put forth the mental energy to read, understand, and-most importantly-implement its instructions will be richly rewarded. I hope you'll find this to be an amazing gem and another appropriate inclusion in the thINKing cata-logue. I've read its words and absorbed its teachings many times and finally had the wisdom to implement its lessons.

From the Back Cover:

A step-by-step technique for sparking breakthrough creativity in advertising--or "any" field

Since its publication in 1965, "A Technique for Producing Ideas" has helped thousands of advertising copywriters smash through internal barriers to unleash their creativity. Professionals from poets and painters to scientists and engineers have also used the techniques in this concise, powerful book to generate exciting ideas on demand, at any time, on any subject. Now let James Webb Young's unique insights help you look inside yourself to find that big, elusive idea--and once and for all lift the veil of mystery from the creative process.

"James Webb Young is in the tradition of some of our greatest thinkers when he describes the workings of the creative process. The results of many years in advertising have proved to him that the key element in communications success is the production of relevant and dramatic ideas. He not only makes this point vividly for us but shows us the road to that goal."
--William Bernbach, Former Chairman and CEO, Doyle Dane Bernbach Inc.
