Allen Gannett overturns the myths of creative genius and shows that it's not the province of genius - of those select brilliant few whose moments of insight arrive in unpredictable flashes of inspiration. Allan explains the science to achieving success in any creative field - from writing a novel to starting a successful company. Based on his book, The Creative Curve, you’ll forget everything you think you know about creative genius and find that everyone can better engineer success.
