Creativity by John Cleese

September 14, 2021

This breezy, delightful book was the first I’d checked out of the library in over two years (thanks, COVID). But beyond that, it’s just a delightful read. Who wouldn’t find a thing or two to learn from Cleese and enjoy the learning? Much of what he covers here is basic, as creative practice goes, but the points are made with wit and charm. I took three pages of notes.

He covers the role of the unconscious, the phases of creative thinking (what he calls the hare brain and the tortoise brains), how to get unstuck, and how to get feedback. Overall, a worthwhile read.
