There is a paradox. As children, most of us think we are highly creative; as adults many of us think we are not. What changes as children grow up? Organizations across the globe are competing in a world that is changing faster than ever. They say they need people who can think creatively, who are flexible and quick to adapt. Too often they say they can't find them. Why not? In this provocative and inspiring book, Ken Robinson addresses three vital questions:
* Why is it essential to promote creativity? Business leaders, politicians and educators emphasize the vital importance of promoting creativity andinnovation. Why does this matter so much?
* What is the problem? Why do so many people think they're not creative? Young children are buzzing with ideas. What happens as we grow up and go through school to make us think we arenot creative?
* What can be done about it? What is creativity? What can companies, schools and organizations do to develop creativity and innovation in a deliberate and systematic way?
In this extensively revised and updated version of his bestselling classic, Out of Our Minds, Ken Robinson offers a groundbreaking approach to understanding creativity in education and in business. He argues that people and organizations everywhere are dealing with problems that originate in schools and universities and that many people leave education with no idea at all of their real creative abilities. Out of Our Minds is a passionate and powerful call for radically different approaches to leadership, teaching and professional development to help us all to meet the extraordinary challenges of living and working in the 21st century. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe .

Was das Buch erzählt ist schon sehr interessant. Das Problem ist, dass diese Sachen auch schon in andere Bücher und Lesungen des Autors zu finden sind. Das ist schade. Ich habe das Buch darum nicht ausgelesen. Vielleicht ein schönes Buch für diejenigen ,die den Autor noch nicht kennen.

This is just a superb readable book that makes so much sense to any person who has or has had anything to do with education and particularly those who want and strive for young people to be creative thinkers and 'to think outside of the box'. Enjoy.

Noch habe ich das Buch nicht beendet - allerdings möchte ich jetzt schon sagen, dass Ken Robinson die für mich ungemein spannenden Aspekte von Kreativität, Lernen, formaler Bildung und Schule in lockerem und humorvollem Ton beschreibt. Auch für einen Nicht-Native-Speaker wie mich ist das Buch leicht und flüssig zu lesen.

This book offers a lot of diverse examples of people trying different approaches to solve problems and enjoy a passionate life. But it is not just a list of examples. The author brings insights into society which are helpful for a regular citizen and for the people in power.

Breezy, beautiful, thought provoking read 6. September 2011
Von Todd B. Kashdan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
I'm unsure why its taken me this long to digest anything by Ken Robinson. After reading a free copy of this revamped book, I am officially a fan. Let me give a few reasons why this needs to get into the hands of teachers, businessman, policy makers, parents, and basically everyone else:

1. Nearly everyone wants the people around them to be more creative but the dominant paradigm in education, politics, and business is conformity. Everybody wants the creativity and innovation but without the risk of failing. This book, like many others, explains why creativity requires the freedom to inquire, explore, and fail in the pursuit of breaking new territory.

2. Society is changing at far too fast a rate to rely on past information as a means of educating people

3. Traditional systems of learning and governing are antiquated, and far too wed to a narrow conception of intelligence

Ken's ideas are couched in science but he does a fantastic job of putting it into the background so that it doesn't derail the narrative. He is brilliant at weaving brief sentences and chapters together, building tension until the final 2 chapters that focus on increasing the amount of creativity in the world. The only criticism I have is that the reference section was incomplete and does not allow the reader to retrace his steps. Tons of references to newspaper articles and website addresses instead of more useful books and articles. This is a minor criticism and in fact, consider it a compliment. After finishing this in two nights, I wanted to follow the breadcrumbs to the most groundbreaking strategies for cultivating creativity.

EXTRAORDINARY - A Mind Blowing Book - You Simply Must Read It - 5 STARS !!!! 6. September 2011
Von Richard of Connecticut - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
There is simply no better way to absorb worthwhile information than from a great book. I knew I was onto something with this book when I saw some of the people who took the time to write a couple of sentences of praise on behalf of author Ken Robinson's work. They included Howard Gardner and Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi (don't try to pronounce it; I have been trying for years).

Now Howard Gardner is the man who runs Project Zero at Harvard. He is also a two time recipient of the MacArthur Genius award. His impact on our country and the world has been massive. I suggest you read anything that writes, anything. This is the man who developed the theory of multiple intelligences. Then you have Csikszentmihalyi who came up with the concept of FLOW. The state in which you are so passionately involved in a project, time is just flying by, you are in a peak experience as Abraham Maslow use to say. For these two giants (read all their books by the way) to write words of praise told me this book is going to be something special. I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED.

About one in every 100 books I read is truly special, impactful, worthy of remembrance, and re-reading. "Out of Our Minds" is one of those rare books. You read it, and you feel the author's energy surging from the book and into your mind. You will be transformed, and you must re-visit this narrative from time to time. You will be sorry when it's over, because you will want more. Everyone should read this book, and each of us will benefit from every page.

What it's about

In ten chapters and 286 pages, Robinson takes us through the world of CREATIVITY, a skillset that the author believes we are all born with, but then it gets shunted aside in our young lives while the school systems attempt to commoditize us (successfully too) into their preconfigured concepts of who and what we should become. It is Robinson's contention that we all have incredible potential for living creative lives both on a personal level and in our chosen course of work. What's more, he believes that it is this quality; the quality of acting in creative ways that will save us as a society and allow us to prosper as opposed to the regimentation that society puts us through.

He wants us to understand just how much creative ability we have in our souls, and he wants us to access it. He wants corporations to slow down in their path of creating corporate armies, and instead to become creative organizations where a whole new set of conditions will exist. These conditions will foster people in their attempt to flourish, and as he say to promote a creative revolution in this country. His discussion of the Pixar Corporation and their in house university which allows all employees to study any subject they desire that is taught within the corporation is worth the price of the book by itself. Pixar also allow their employees to take 4 hours of their workweek and convert to to Pixar University time.

In the first parts of the book, Robinson takes us on a tour de force of world history and creativity. This for me is where the book positively excels. For those of us who are big time readers, it simply does not get any better than this part of the book. He's giving us John Kenneth Galbraith, Picasso, Einstein, Edison, Shakespeare, Johannes Gutenberg, Sir Frances Bacon, Jean Piaget, H.G. Wells, and probably a 100 more. He then takes us on a history of the world including pre-industrial societies, the Industrial Revolution, and the Information Society we are currently in. There is not a single page of this book that I found boring, and that is really saying something.

The Man's Mind is Unique

How often do you come across a book which you find absolutely fascinating. This is a book that you can't wait to get back into when you put it down, if you can put it down at all. When you get into Our of Our Minds, you will find yourself reading something that will jolt you into a new perspective, where you can say, give me more? I want to leave you with a few ideas and thoughts that are spread through this narrative, what I think are nuggets, diamonds really, that perhaps will motivate you to see what I saw in this remarkable book:

* The education system in this country was completely modeled on the needs of the Industrial Revolution which is based on linearity, conformity and standardization. People therefore need to RECOVER from their educations in order to become more creative.

* The financially led 2008 recession was caused by credit and asset bubbles that caused over-consumption and then blew into a recession. We are still paying a price that will take years to work out of.

* Humans believe that we can live separate and apart from nature - we cannot.

* In 1950, the average American traveled 5 miles per day. Ten years ago, it was 30 miles per day. In ten years (2020), it will be 60 miles per day.

* A digital wrist watch today has more computing power than the spaceship Neil Armstrong used to land on the moon.

* There is a thorough discussion of Nano-technology and robotics and how it will change the world in the coming decades.

* In this country we consider a decade to be a long time. In England a century is a long time, and in China you have to think in terms of a thousand years before it is considered a long time. This is actually ingrained in our thinking.


If you want a laugh try this one. Robinson tells us that the primary purpose of economic forecasting is to make astrology look repsectable. He is quoting John Kenneth Galbreith. I believe this book will impact your life, and change the way you think and reflect on yourself. You will make decisions about the way you want to spend the rest of your life. You will reflect as to whether or not what you have been doing with your time is truly worthwhile, and you will come away the better for it. This is that rare book that you do not gently put down when it is over. You will have to come back to it; you simply cannot ignore its contents. Thank you for reading this review.

Poorly Titled, but well written Tome on Education, not Creativity 28. Oktober 2011
Von Amber FLYNN - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
I cannot give this book a bad review, but I can warn potential readers to be careful that the title of the book does not equate with the material presented in this book. The title is simply not clear. It is called "Out of our Minds, Learning to be Creative." I am definitely interested in learning how to be "Out of my Mind and Learning to be Creative" but that is not what this book was about for me.

Like another reviewer of this book, I wanted to throw this book across the room several times. But I stuck in there and read it through. Sometimes the material was interesting, but overall not very memorable for me.

This is a book about the educational system and what changes need to be made collectively to include creativity in the curriculum. This is also a Tome about the History of Education, and the ongoing changes in Academia. This book may also help an individual who wants to start their creative process, but it is not about learning to be creative. This book reads like a PhD dissertation turned into a book, but it does not speak to those of us who have already embraced a life of creativity and want to learn how to be more creative.

I would recommend this book to those individuals who are ready to get out of Academia and pursue a path of creativity, but if you are already an artist or very connected to your creativity this book will be very frustrating. I would recommend the Artists Way by Julia Cameron if you want a great book on how to unblock and enjoy your creative process.

What I did get out of this book were plenty of factoids about education and academia. Mr. Robinson is a bit of a high tower intellectual and so the material reads a bit dry and informative. Information can be helpful but learning how to be creative is not an informational process.

Finally, I have to disagree with Mr. Robinson vehemently when he says in chapter 6 that creativity is about "doing something." It is actually much deeper then that. As an Artist I have found that idea to be too simplistic of a view on creativity. Creativity is a much more layered process then simply doing. Most of the time "doing" gets in the way. "Being" is a more clear channel for higher creativity.

Title is misleading, just watch his talks online. 20. Januar 2012
Von Spenny - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Another reviewer had said many of the same things that I would say here, but I felt that another similar voice was needed. Similarly, I cannot give this book a bad review, but simply say that it is poorly titled; Out of Our Minds: Learning to be Creative, is misleading as to the actual contents of the book.

The book is largely about the history of creativity, through interesting anecdotes, factoids, statistics, stories, speculations and opinions. I kept on waiting for chapters like "Being Creative" and "Learning to be Creative" to have some actual, useful suggestions on actually being creative, but was disappointed only to read yet another set of arguments on why creativity is so important and why we should all be creative and teach others to be creative. I also found parts to be quite repetitive, reframing arguments from earlier chapters in an only slightly different context. Also, if you are familiar with Robinson's talks online about creativity and passion, you will recognize many of the anecdotal passages almost verbatim, except without the charismatic presentation.

If you're looking for a quiet and quick weekend read that is chock full of conversation fodder, then sure, pick this book up and enjoy it, but if you're as busy as most of us are these days, I'd recommend watching Robinson's two Ted talks and the one on Passion he gave for the School of Life. They are more than adequate summaries of this book, highly engaging and easily shared with others.

In my opinion, the book is successful in making the argument for creativity, but lacks the usefulness that the title promises.

Big Ideas that Go Unsupported 8. Mai 2013
Von Oddsfish - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I was interested in reading Ken Robinson's for a couple of reasons. First, I'm an educator who thinks that my classes should perhaps be doing more to foster creativity in my students. I thought that I might get some ideas from a book subtitled "Learning to Be Creative." Second, I've watched some of the videos of Robinson's famous TED talks. He makes some large (i.e. schools follow and industrial model and so don't promote creativity) and controversial (i.e. student cheating, if done in the business world, would be called collaborating) claims in the videos, and I wanted to see if he could back up the claims. I came to the book interested and open to his ideas.

Unfortunately, I came away from Out of Our Minds very disappointed. I was disappointed for several reasons. First of all, I thought that it featured a real lack of creative ideas and suggestions for producing creativity. During the section at the end of the book, when Robinson attempts to give teachers advice on methods for promoting creativity, I kept thinking, "What is new here?" With regard to suggestions for how to actually conduct a class, I can't see what he would suggest that we don't already do and haven't been doing for decades. Robinson does make some more novel suggestions about ways that whole schools or school districts could be structured differently so as to promote creativity. These, however, struck me as wildly unrealistic and unwieldy for public schools to implement. They also struck me as failing to take into account the diverse, and often troubled, set of students that we attempt to teach in schools. I have read a lot of reviews from non-educators who fault the book for not offering them any takeaways. The book, some of these reviewers have said, is focused too much on the education world. As an educator, I'm sad that the book failed to offer any takeaways for me either.

The bigger problem that I had with the book is Robinson's tremendous failure to back up his claims with research. Over and over and over Robinsons arrives at conclusions which he supports only with anecdotal evidence or with statements from people he's consulted with in the business world. For example, on page 235, Robinson begins a section called "Creativity loves collaboration." This, in fact, is one of the themes of Robinson's videos and of this book (it's also something that I hear continually from my school administrators), and I was very curious what he had to say on the subject. After all, I've read several studies and books that dispute the notion that creativity works best in collaborative atmosphere (read Susan Cain's popular Quiet for a much better researched discussion on the subject). Some people and some types of creativity require collaboration, this research says, but not most.

How does Robinson support his argument? With an anecdote, of course. Pixar runs a school in which all employees, including engineers, security people, and janitors, may learn about the creative arts of filmmaking in the hope that the whole company will be fostering new connections and innovations. Pixar's is an interesting idea and set-up, but nothing in the anecdote demonstrates that the company-wide creative training has actually contributed to any of Pixar's creations. And the anecdote certainly doesn't adequately support the general notion that collaboration loves creativity.

This is just one example of the either unfounded or, at best, unsupported claims which saturate the book. I'm not sure that Robinson is all wrong on what he says. A lot of other people are echoing him. But I think this book is bold and loud and, ultimately, pretty empty. Robinson fails, in a 326 page book, to go beyond what he's offered in a 9 minute lecture. That's a problem. This is an interesting subject, but I'd look elsewhere to learn about it.
