Unwind to Get Creative!

In the mid '80s, Roger von Oech came out with two stellar works for unlocking our Western thinking: A Whack on the Side of the Head (1983, 1998), and A Kick in the Seat of the Pants (1986). Each timeless classic is an excellent workbook. Both show us Westerners how to unlock the mind for innovation and creativity.

Conceptual Blockbusting is another good guide to open up your thinking. The latest edition (1990) may be a little outdated in some of the exercises, but the 'bottom line' is, it's still got a lot of heat.
