Book Review: Imagine That

by Josh
A book review of Imagine: How Creativity Works by Jonah Lehrer

Reviewer’s Note: Much news has been released in recent weeks about the fabricated quotes present in Imagine. However damaging this may be, the meat of the book appears to still be intact. It is currently out of print due to these issues, but a second edition with corrected information has been planned for release.
