Those who succeed have learned to harness their creative power by keeping that light bulb turned on. Now, Betty Edwards, author of Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain, the million-copy best-seller that proved all people can draw well just as they can read well, has decoded the secrets of the creative process to help you tap your full creative potential and apply that power to everyday problems. How does Betty Edwards do this? Through the power of drawing -- power you can harness to see problems in new ways. You will learn how the creative process progresses from stage to stage and how to move your own problem-solving through these key steps: * First insight * Saturation * Incubation * Illumination (the Ah-Ha!) * Verification Through simple step-by-step exercises that require no special artistic abilities, Betty Edwards will teach you how to take a new point of view, how to look at things from a different perspective, how to see the forest and the trees, in short, how to bring your visual, perceptual brainpower to bear on creative problem-solving.
