Customer Reviews of A Technique For Producing Ideas

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Technique for Producing Ideas This is a short but powerful book. James Young captures the essence of how to create a great "idea factory" that you will discover in less than 10 minutes. The heart of Young's system is to have & hold an insatiable curiosity for all things. The mind then does what it does best... Discovering patterns or inter-dependent relationships between data. The more data, the more information to correlate. His description of the mind as a kaleidoscope is perfect. It is from this twisting and turning of patterns in the mind that produces the "aha" moments and breakthrough ideas. Young's story helps you understand how creative genius works. But alway stay thirsty for knowledge!
