Creativity has long been thought to be an individual gift, best pursued alone; schools, organizations, and whole industries are built on this idea.

Sharing the results of his own acclaimed research on jazz groups, theater ensembles, and conversation analysis, Keith Sawyer shows us how to be more creative in collaborative group settings, how to change organizational dynamics for the better, and how to tap into our own reserves of creativity.
