Impressionism, the iPhone, democracy, Uber – when we think about creativity, we most often think of things. We also narrow in on the few, those rare creators who seem to have something we lack. These tendencies quickly take us off track, perpetuating a myth and unknowingly pushing us further away from the possible.
Here’s the truth: Creativity is about the possible. It’s the seed of any human advancement ever made or yet to be imagined. Most important and powerful of all, creativity is a uniquely human capacity that each of us possesses – including you.
The story of creativity is the story of who we are, a story still unfolding. It’s time we come to understand it and learn how each of us can contribute our verse. It’s time we understand this language of man and learn to speak creativity.
Award-winning author Larry Robertson takes us on this most important journey, one for which he makes the perfect guide. Robertson is, in his own parlance, a border crosser, taking us across a wide horizon of knowledge and inside many fields. He’s equally an astute noticer seeing and showing us the subtle patterns and insights most miss. His bold and original thinking is backed by an impressive depth and breadth of research, and Robertson’s engaging conversational style is the kind that moves readers from words to action.
The Language of Man provides more than needed understanding; it offers a powerful framework for creating.
If you want to create or innovate, this book is indispensible.
