THE CREATIVE SPARK How Imagination Made Humans Exceptional

by | Read by Agustín Fuentes

Contemporary Culture • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Drawing on a rich understanding of biological and social evolution, this stimulating audiobook shows how collaboration fueled our transformation from ape-like ancestors to the imaginative species we are today. The author's palpable reverence for the miracle of human creativity makes this audio shine, along with his attractive phrasing, excellent vocal tone, and a narrative style that seems to speak personally to every listener. Engaging stories show how a series of innovations like tool making and cooking led to the more powerful brains necessary for humans to start creating government, commerce, technology, and art. With fascinating anthropological insights always center stage, he shows how collaboration not only fuels today's creative breakthroughs but is also the critical skill needed to solve the many challenges humankind will face in the future.
