Frontal Cortex over at Wired and he now has a new book out called Imagine - How Creativity Works.
"........Shattering the myth of muses, higher powers, even creative “types,”

possessed by the lucky few. It’s a variety of distinct thought processes
that we can all learn to use more effectively."
Might just have to put it on my wishlist or maybe treat myself now..... I've no patience!
