New Book Arrival: Possible Futures: Creative Thinking for the Speed of Life by Jude Treder-Wolff

The publicist, Phenix & Phenix, generously sent me a copy of Possible Futures: Creative Thinking for the Speed of Life for review.



Possible Futures: Creative Thinking For The Speed of Life deconstructs the strands of our increasingly fast-paced, technology driven, and socially fragmented lives. Weaving together current research and information from the worlds of social psychology, economics, physics, business, and education, the book puts words to the psychological, emotional and social effects of the speed of life in these times and the consumer culture that drives it. Some key points: Creativity and relationship/networking skills as core competencies for success in the 21st century; The ways consumer culture continually redesigns what it means to have a good-enough life, with impacts on our sense of self, family life, and health. Addictive thinking and its effects on society; How we learn to deny, abandon and mistrust our intuitive, creative drives and what we can do to develop them at any point in our lives; The evidence that arts training, creative development, and arts-based experiences grow the brain and strengthen psychological resilience. Possible Futures is a handbook for living with the creativity, consciousness and connectedness we need to succeed in these paradigm-shifting times
