Creative Perfektion. The Why and How of Creative Thinking

Wrote a book with a good friend, Dr Mark Kilgour from Waikato University, New Zealand. Its titled Creative Perfektion. The Why and How of Creative Thinking.

The book is based on Mark's experiments and PhD study and my teaching at Germany some time back. We worked it out that most books were either too academic or too simplistic. We tried to provide a better view of creativity by incorporating theory into a usually 'showman' talk type of books. Instead of just highlighting techniques (the How), we explained processes and the why of creative thinking and looked at the Big C vs the Small c. This will allow for the reader a deeper understanding of creative thinking and what has been holding him/her back.

A sample of the book can be read here.

Recently I had the opportunity to share our book with the Chief Minister of Sarawak, Pehin Sri Haji Abdul Taib bin Mahmud, his deputy as well as a number of dignitaries.


We are in the process to have a soft copy of the book sold on the Internet. Will inform when that happens.

For now, I would invite all of you to purchase a copy of this book by calling the UNIMAS Publisher representative, Madam Rabiah at 0128560354 or email her at rabiah91@hotmail.com for details on the cost of the book + courier to you. The book is sold at RM37.50 each.

I also am planning to do training for those who wish to learn more on creative thinking, for companies and organizations. The best would be a 5 day series but that would take too long and as such a summary can be done in 2 to 3 days depending on the capacity of the organization. Contact me for further details at drernest@feb.unimas.my.
