Review:

"The text itself is a wealth of information?the "everything you wanted to know about creativity"-contributed by anyone who is anybody in the field-a sort of Who's Who of creativity studies... As can be seen, the editors have gone to great extremes to make the contents of the encyclopedia unrivaled?both in size and content... In sum, Encyclopedia of Creativity is an impressive work by any standard. We warmly recommend this tour de force publication. It is a must for every university library and it would be the pride of the private library of any scholar."
?HIGH ABILITY STUDIES

"The Encyclopedia of Creativity is a highly impressive, collaborative achievement... The wide range of topics are aptly chosen and deftly interwoven by means of extensive cross-referencing and indexing... Unprecedented in breadth and scope, the Encyclopedia of Creativity decisively establishes creativity as an important field in its own right... this work is a resounding success, and decisively establishes creativity as an important multidisciplinary field... Congratulations to the editors, the Executive Advisory Board, and the contributing authors!"
?CONTEMPORARY PSYCHOLOGY (2002, Vol. 47, No. 2)

"...this encyclopedia represents a useful effort to bring together research on creativity and will serve undergraduate and graduate students well."
?CHOICE

"The stated purpose of the books is to 'inspire further recognition in both the general public and the academic community that the study of creativity is a field in itself' and that 'Enough is now known about creativity that it can be integrated into every level of our educational system' (p.xv). These two volumes certainly should go a long way towards these goals. Whithin them should be something to catch the interests of nearly any reader with a curious mind, the person who is specifically interested in the topic of creativity, and even the casual browser wishing to become better informed about his how thought and that of others."
?PERCEPTUAL AND MOTOR SKILLS
