Reading this book made me feel both optimistic about our potential (including my own) to become more creative while also finding the many suggestions overwhelming. The lesson I learned from this book was that while there is no simple way to increase creativity, there are some simple methods that lead to being more creative as well as societal structures that also support the process. The big issue here is not even that the prat made up some Dylan, in an ignorant and arrogant way thinking he'd get away with it.

Next, you could add smell and touch to add just another layer of depth to your movie scenes. The more time you take to draw out all these perceptions from your book, the more rewarding your experience.

As a general strategy, when you read a book, imagine yourself sitting in a movie theater. While reading a sentence, turn its content into a little movie scene playing out in front of you as the story unfolds. While this is a fun book, much of it seems to be quite obvious, and covered in numerous other books. This is especially true for the first half of the book, which is titled "Alone". I did not need to read, for the umpteenth time, how an engineer at 3M invented post-it notes. Likewise, it is so obvious that some of the most creative people are those whose expertise spans multiple areas. In the beginning, read a sentence (or part of a sentence), then stop to gradually transform its words into a movie scene. Next, you go through the following sentence, feeding its images into the previously imagined scenario. Continue with this process till you’ve turned a whole paragraph into a cohesive little movie. John: We recorded some in Quad too, it’s fantastic, I did the Quad in New York, it’s beautiful. Quad Music!! Saying something is true, doesn't make it true in reality. Therein lies the danger. You can say 2+2=5 because I want it to be 5 and not 4. But that doesn't make it so. You can argue it many different ways. I feel oppressed by the idea that 2+2=4. I feel free and liberated when I say 2+2=3 or 2+2=5 or 2+2=18. I don't want anyone telling me that 2+2=4 is the only true answer. Why can't 2+2=7 be just as true as 2+2=4? Why isn't 7 just as good a number as 4? Who are you to say that 7 ISN'T as good as 4? You do math your way, I'll do math my way. After all what difference does it make?! Live and let live, right?!?!

Look at the illustrations in the book, as well as photos of real animals, and try to create your own pictures of some of them. Imagine ultimately reminds me of the book of Jeremiah. In his day, there were prophets--even priests--saying PEACE, PEACE, ALL IS WELL, ALL IS GOOD. BLESSINGS FOR EVERYONE. But these false words of hope were condemned by the prophet Jeremiah. Jeremiah 6:14 reads, "They dress the wound of my people as though it were not serious. ‘Peace, peace,’ they say, when there is no peace." In short, Yoko courageously provides us with a gift that is exceptionally generous of spirit: we are allowed to witness John as a full and extraordinary human being. There is a wonderful simplicity to the artwork, as you're watching this pigeon explore the world around him, trying to unify people. Ultimately that was Lennon's message on a whole, finding peace, loving others regardless of race, gender, colour, sexuality or creed. He believed that one day the world would be "one" and peace would defeat war. We need the hope that Imagine provides to remind us that people are not inherently evil.After earlier disputing claims made by a magazine writer, Lehrer admitted on Monday that he had been guilty of making up and misattributing quotes about Bob Dylan in his best-selling book, Imagine: How Creativity Works. These criticisms aside however, Lehrer's thesis remains strong, and it is refreshing to see someone grapple with the subject matter in such an optimistic fashion. It seems that we too often treat the "creativity" of "innovators" as this scarce natural resource. There is romance in the mystery of Creative Geniuses, but it is not a helpful romance. You need not be born "that way"; being a Creative Genius (or even just Sufficiently Innovative) is something that you can work toward. All we need is the right climate: Imagine gave me hope that I don't have to wait for a muse to hit me over the head. I can take steps that will open the tap of creativity in my head and keep it flowing. That it's not just a matter of talent but a mixture of planning, work, and perseverance that will allow me to create the life I want to live - both professionally and personally.

The recording occurred on May 27, 1971 at Ascot Sound Studios, which was Lennon's new home studio at Tittenhurst Park. Think of different animals that are weak / strong, short / long etc. How do these different features help them to survive?

Most of us fail to remember the essential ideas of books we read. Often enough, we’re embarrassed by our inability to recall the contents of a famous novel even if we’ve read it recently.

It’s all the same people, a bit looser, a bit buskier, a bit more raw, and has a great charm because of it. And it’s important that we treat everyone like that, not just our family and our friends. We should treat everybody the same, no matter where they are from or if they speak a different language. After all, the pigeon in this book welcomes all the other birds, whatever colour of feathers or shape of beak they have. Lehrer presents a strong case against brainstorming and for criticism which spurs on more thinking, refinement of ideas, a challenge that leads to new and better thinking. Just affirmation isn't enough, critical reception appears to be vital. Unfortunately, Lehrer does get one thing totally wrong. He slags off the great Alex Osborn, because his idea 'brainstorming' doesn't really deliver. This is a classic misunderstanding that tends to come if you don't actually read Osborn's books. He never intended brainstorming to be used in isolation to generate ideas. It's an idea collection technique, not a generation technique - it's supposed to be used alongside a generation technique, which Lehrer doesn't mention. He also collapses the creative process, usually at its best consisting of at least four stages, into a single event and so totally fails to understand it.
