The entries were submitted, the books were read, the shortlists determined, and we are now ready to announce the category winners of the 2013 800-CEO-READ Business Book Awards!
In the Innovation & Creativity category…
Erik Wahl’s Unthink: Rediscover Your Creative Genius from Crown Business takes the top spot.
“We secretly believe that creative genius is reserved for the chosen few—for the poets, the painters, the writers. The truth is that breakthrough creativity is in all of us. It is us. It is the process through which you and I discover all we were meant to be and do.”
Unthink, page 11
When we were young, we didn’t think much about creativity, we just were creative all the time. As adults, we often struggle to get that sense of wonder back. We fear the ridiculous, and are burdened by how we’re “supposed” to think and do, yet we still hold a bounty of adventure, ideas, and inspiration within each of us. Looking to relocate your natural creativity and harness innovation? Unthink is our guide.
To revisit the runners-up, check out our Creativity & Innovation shortlist announced last week.
