The central tenet of the author -- who taught the celebrated creativity-in-business course at Stanford University -- is "creativity is what happens between your thoughts." In this exhilarating and liberating book, stories abound of successful business types who took Ray's creativity course and discovered their "calling," leading many to completely different destinations from the executive suite.
