The book is subtitled A Complete Course in the Art of Creating Solutions to Problems of Any Kind and it certainly lives up to that billing. This is a book you should have in your reference library. ... [The author] made a special effort to make the subject clear and easy to follow. He uses lots of examples and exercises on a variety of real world problems. He avoids any "mumbo-jumbo" and does not try to make simple tools seem overly complex (like many authors in the field). In fact, Richard used the creativity tools to make the book the most user-friendly I have ever seen. Anyone who has to prepare written instructions would benefit from studying and "borrowing" the concepts he uses to write this book. ... This [radial outline] tool can be used by an individual or group and yields better results than brainstorming.
