** Inventology by Pagan Kennedy

Inventology: How we Dream Up Things That Change The World tells stories about the invention process, usefully arranged by themes of how ideas come to inventors, and also describes a few attempts at creating a structured technique for creativity (one involving, scarily and in the end not so successfully, LSD!). The stories are entertaining and well told. The reader is left with healthy doubts about whether creativity can be taught — but there is no doubt that some techniques are for sure helpful.
