I was staring at what appeared to be puzzle pieces in my hand. Suddenly I
became aware that I was being held in God's hand, surrounded by a sense ofvast
peacefulness. A deep, resonant voice spoke with encouragement. “Keep looking.

Have you ever wondered whether credible evidence supports the old cliché, “Every cloud has a silver lining?” In this fascinating exploration of the interplay between pain and possibility, Dr. Gail Feldman shows us that the answer is an emphatic ‘yes.’ Grief can be a powerful catalyst for creativity. Through portraits of historical figures such as van Gogh, Gandhi and Michelangelo, as well as clinical case studies featuring psychotherapy and past life regression therapy, Dr. Feldman takes us on a journey through the human psyche and provides a map for finding new life among the ruins of personal loss and change. “It takes very special information to lead to transformation. From Crisis to Creativity is very special and can lead you to revelation and rebirth. Charcoal to diamonds – Use the pressure.” – Bernie Siegel, MD. “In this beautiful and inspiring book, Gail Feldman shows how to transform adversity into creative expression and joy. From Crisis to Creativity is one of the best roadmaps I have read to illuminate the way.” – Brian Weiss, MD

Is creativity a therapeutic, culturally enriching and health-giving pursuit, or is it an outpouring of darkly unconscious, neurotically dangerous material? What have been some of the important modern influences on our assumptions and ideas about creativity? Using a fascinatingly varied but beautifully controlled blend of approaches, Kevin Brophy places the creative writer and artist within a modern history of arguments over questions of creativity. He discusses creativity as a social-cultural practice, presenting creativity as a historical, political and inevitably compromised practice which must always be in dispute. In a world where creative writing is becoming institutionalised through university courses, he argues for the importance of continuing instability, theoretical sophistication and unsettled differences over what creativity is.

"When I see a great short-order cook with grace and great economy of gesture", Gloria Steinem says in these pages, "I think that's taking a human endeavor to its peak". Others interviewed here offer less encompassing parameters to define the boundaries of creativity. CREATIVITY: Conversations with 28 Who Excel, however, does not resolve philosophical questions such as "What is creativity?" or "Who is an artist and how did they get that way?" Instead, acclaimed achievers from a remarkable spectrum of disciplines offer invaluable glimpses into private creative cauldrons. Their lessons and insights allow the reader to synthesize his or her own answers to the big questions. Or better yet, simply to enjoy. Here, for example, is screenwriter Frank Pierson explaining why he almost killed the classic line "What we have here is a failure to communicate" from his Cool Hand Luke script: "I looked at it and said, 'Oh shit, that's good.' But then my next thought was, 'This redneck can't say that.'" Or actor E. G. Marshall explaining how he disagreed with Woody Allen's direction in one Interiors scene: "But I did it his way because it was his idea. Ironically, it turned out that Ingmar Bergman praised that scene and praised me for doing it that way. That's why I always say I shouldn't put myself into the part. I should put the part into myself". Other masters from fields traditionally labeled as creative - literature, visual arts, music - give the reader similar views inside their professional lives. No businessmen or doctors are on the roster, but a renowned attorney reveals why preparing for the courtroom is like writing a play. A master chef illustrates how the astute gourmet's aesthetic judgmentis clouded by childhood experiences at the dinner table. And a Hall of Fame baseball announcer suggests that a Southern tradition of storytelling helped him become a painter of vivid word pictures for millions of radio listeners. CREATIVITY is a learning experience but it is not a textbook. It is an anthology of conversations we all would like to have if we were scheduling a thoughtful chat this afternoon with, say, Grant Tinker or Ntozake Shange or Dutch Leonard or Philip Glass or Morgan Freeman. Bring a picnic basket and get comfortable. You'll want to linger and listen.
