Neat little book, shares some similarities with the author's other book on creative destruction--the book is a tackle box and a canvas. Didn't get the full effect on a public library copy that I don't care to damage. Who is this book for? Creative folks who are timid and want to ease into the bath. The author directs exercises meant to make art more accessible, to downplay originality, to fun it up a bit. This book is for everyone, only limit is your imagination.
