Spark for the Fire is for those who want to excel. It’s for the people who are passionate about what they want to do. So passionate it makes them mad enough to think they can impact the world for the better by doing it. It is for anyone wanting to put their imagination to use, in any discipline. Lastly, this book is for the youthful; in age, experience or attitude - and those who want to be - whether to kick-start a career or reignite an established one.
In this honest and inspiring book, Ian Wharton examines how creativity is something best practiced by embracing useful characteristics of youth. You don't have to be young for that. These characteristics lie within all of us and the stories in this book are simply reminders how to make the most of them. Stories that show why creativity favours intuition, the merits of exploration, creative purpose, and the necessity of daring to fail.
Spark for the Fire features contributions from some of the most inspiring creative people in the world. From Nick Park, Academy Award winner and creator of Wallace & Gromit, to Jamie Oliver - a phenomenon of the food world, TED Prize winner and one of Fast Company's Most Creative People.
This is the most extraordinary time for people with a desire to make things. And now more than ever, youthful thinking can help spark the fire of creativity.
