In I Wonder: the Science of Imagination, author Jerry Rhodes seeks to inspire a new understanding of what is involved in growing the ephemeral skill called imagination, which is often undervalued but which has become essential to success in all areas of modern life.
Rhodes invites us to picture what it would be like to be without imagination:
• how this would limit and undermine everything in life,
• how barren and boring life would be without it
• how nothing would advance - we would still be in the stone-age
He shows us the benefits of creative thinking and challenges readers to take action to reduce their inner barriers to their own imagination.
