While there are hundreds of books on how to be more creative at work and home, Fizzle is the first book to explore the reasons why our creative spirit is in such short supply in the first place. Fizzle includes dynamic investigations that offer insights into the personal and societal barriers to creative expression. You'll discover how your teachers miseducated you, why the right answer is usually wrong, and the "killer phrases" that often get in the way of creative thinking. Fredericks reveals what creative souls and dynamic thinkers already know, and shows how a knowledge of creativity barriers can help you create innovative and satisfying solutions in the workplace, your education, and your personal life!

Entertaining, provocative, and fun, Fizzleis not the usual compendium of creativity strategies, but rather a book that examines why creativity is often a challenge and how that knowledge can change your life and change your thinking ... forever!
