|Few topics are as important--or as intriguing--as creativity. It plays a huge role in virtually every field, from art to organizational science, from counseling to technology. It is related to both psychological and physical health, the effectiveness of problem solving, and innumerable everyday activities. Each of us will benefit, on personal and professional levels, if we interest in our creative potential and make decisions taking sound research into account. The present volume, one of three in The Creativity Research Handbook series, goes into great depth about the research on creativity. It will bring the scholar up to date and bring the newcomer up to speed about what has been done in creativity research. These volumes cover long-standing areas of study, such as development and creativity, as well as new applications of creativity research, including economic research and studies of stress and creativity. Each chapter is thorough and focuses on reliable research. No other source will bring anyone up to date quite so well as The Creativity Research Handbooks.|
