Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Everyone has creative potentials waiting to be discovered. The challenge we all face is learning how to tap into those potentials to release our creative gifts. Innovative educator Roy P. Fairfield has mined his many years of experience and his own creativity in teaching people new ways to explore their inner resources by writing this fun, practical, and truly inspiring book. Fairfield's main thesis is that the process of creativity is more important than the product, and we can all learn to be creative every day. To that end he has created a series of entertaining and interesting exercises, including a "Write-in-the-Dark Kit," a retirement kit called "Count Down to Re-FIRE-ment," and "Crap-Detecting as a Way of Life." Encouraging readers to "go forth and do likewise," Fairfield demonstrates how such exercises can open entire new mental landscapes to be explored with both joy and satisfaction.

Drawing on the ideas of Abraham Maslow, Carl Rogers, and other pioneers in the humanistic tradition, Fairfield discusses everything from creating a climate for creativity to the uses of illusion to spur on creative expression of all sorts. Truly a hands-on guide for living in the moment, Get Inspired! will change your life, and you'll be thankful for it.


Includes bibliographical references (p. 251-253) and index.
