Secrets to a Creative Mind: Become the Master of Your Mind For centuries, scientists and psychologists have sought to unravel the secrets of creativity, and yet the creative mind remains an enigma … until now. For the first time, readers learn the true inner workings of a human creative mind, not from an erudite scholar, but straight from the source. Such a story can only be told by a creative mind. A mind that has literally created hundreds of successful creative projects that became the learning platform to comprehend the inner workings of the human creative mind. David Judd Nutting – the fertile brain responsible for designing the first SUV -Jeep Grand Wagoneer, the Enstrom helicopter and pioneering Video arcade game system technology – sorts out what makes creative people tick and how to harness that power in Secrets to a Creative Mind: Become the Master of Your Mind. The book will appeal to men and women, all ages and backgrounds, but young professionals will especially appreciate Nutting's insights. Secrets to a Creative Mind reveals how anyone can become the master of their mind and literally forge it into whatever they want to be.
I enjoyed this book, but not for the reasons one might think. This book is supposed to help you open your mind and be more of a creative thinker. I felt it was more of a memoir, with teachings of how the author found success, and believe me when I tell you he did.
I rather admire David Judd Nutting after reading this little book. There are so many points of his life that changed our societies and helped pivotally change how we do things. He was the creator of the first computer. Think today how many of us live our lives based around computers and what would we do now without them?
I also felt the main message to his success and the key points he was trying to instill in the reader, is meditation and empathy are what you have to have to move forward in life. You not only need to empathize with people, but inanimate objects as well. They way he explains it in the book, you understand why. It should be common knowledge that you need to talk to yourself. Whether you meditate or just take time for yourself via a bubble bath or something, you have to be able to clear your mind gutter and expand your thoughts. That is how conclusions are born.
So I think this is a great book, but honestly, unless you are interested in how the brain operates thoughts and memories, or have an interest in a pioneer of engineering, then this won't be for you.
