Thank you for the advanced copy.
This for me is an introduction and I found it thoroughly fascinating, I loved that it felt very accessible. I find this topic fascinating now and this will be a start of an enjoyable journey for me
I've used a version of exploratory writing for years called Freewriting. But this book makes it accessible for all - with friendly but useful explanations of neurology plus welcome hand-holding chapters that take you into the writing experience. I find this technique very, very useful - more so than creative thought sometimes - and you really do get some great ideas coming from the subconscious if you trust yourself. Recomended.
"Exploratory Writing" by Alison Jones brings Julia Cameron's lessons from the 'Artists Way' to the business arena. In it, Jones describes exploratory writing as one of the most "powerful and lightweight thinking tools we have at our disposal" and provides ideas and exercises for how business leaders can use it.
For me, this book didn't really provide any new insights beyond the fact that free writing can not only boost creative output but also leadership. However, for people looking for ways to enhance their leadership skills who have not heard of Cameron's book, I can see this being a helpful addition to their bookshelves.
