“Creative people are creative each in their own way.”

This book will not tell you how to have creative ideas but how to dismantle your old creativity machine and assemble a new improved one. The purpose of the book as the author said was to help individuals achieve their unending stream of useful ideas and generate those ideas into an almost infinite variety of ways.

The blurb acknowledging how to build a unique personal creativity machine was the reason I was drawn to this book in the first place. Second, I really into non-fiction books lately.

Dismantle talks through four sections categorized as ideation, validation, actuation and building the personal creativity machine. Explaining from how to cultivate wild ideas to innovate in dark corners, from telling a story to finding your true passion, dismantle will guide you in the process of deconstructing the mind and generating a creative thinking system.


The interesting part of the book where the author has shared the real creative short stories of a few of his students who did well in the creative thinking aspect. Some of the other few chapters were so good to read, that I marked all those paragraphs to read again. Besides, the narration was easy and convincing, making me stick to the book until the end.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and hope that it shall not disappoint the readers who decide to pick it. This could be a great read to realize how dismantling may benefit in the increase of the personal creative process.
