Speedier Reads: What's your favourite?

There are SO many books out there about creativity and ideas.

One of the inspirations for Faster Ideas was to sort the wheat from the chaff when it comes to books about creativity. We wanted a list of the best titles to pick from ourselves, so we could go deeper into different creative techniques.


That’s the thinking behind Speedier Reads.


But we don't want it to be just what we think!

What's the best creative book of all time?


Do you have a favourite book about creativity, creative living, working, creative practice or creative thinking? Your ‘go-to’ guide that you’re always gifting or recommending? Whether it’s The Artist’s Journey, Edward De Bono or Bob Ross, Faster Ideas would love you to share your favourite creative book in a Speedier Reads video review.


We've also signed up to be an affiliate to BookShop.org UK - the online bookshop with a mission to financially support local and independent bookshops.


As we add to Speedier Reads, we'll create our own book list of the best creative books on our Faster Ideas BookShop.org page and link to buy on BookShop.org UK with each review.
