"The Republic of Creative Thought: How to incorporate creativity in your work and everyday life" is a lifelong journey of ideas, mostly from others. We are all it seems, destined to be creative.

They believe it is not the conveyer that operates workers; it is workers who operate a conveyor-the foundation of a human respect environment.

"It is impossible to tell people how to be creative. When they follow your directions, they are being imitative rather than creative. It is possible, however, to lead people to the water of creativity-i.e., to "encourage" creativity. Dr. Jones provides the tools for encouraging adults to be creative. The reader learns how to create the proper environment and how to describe, evaluate, and reward creativity. The workshop suggestions empower readers to lead groups of friends or co-workers to the waters of creativity. Those same ideas may be used by interested readers to expand their capacity to "think outside the box."
