From reviews of the prior edition:

“…The theme of creativity is effectively woven throughout, beginning with the creative process of the individual, and continuing with the impact that a creative environment can have first, on an individual, and ultimately, on the world. Illustrated. Suitable for all academic libraries. General readers; undergraduates through faculty.” CHOICE

“The book is beautiful, with older photographs of laureates and pictures of the exhibit items in both black-and-white and color illustrating every page…” Chemical Heritage
