The Art of Creative Thinking presents an extraordinary array of examples, from the Dada Manifesto and Andy Warhol's Factory to the films of Ed Wood and the catwalks of Alexander McQueen, along with many others. Readers will learn about the most successful class in educational history (in which every student won a Nobel Prize), how frozen peas were invented, and why 95 percent of Apocalypse Now ended up on the cutting-room floor.
