"Genius is in-born, may it never be still-born."

"Oysters, irritated by grains of sand, give birth to pearls. Brains, irritated by curiosity, give birth to ideas."

"Brainpower is the bridge to the future; it is what transports you from wishful thinking to willful doing."

"Unless you keep learning & growing, the status quo has no status."

Question 12:
We reckon that books are most of the time fancy or pet theories of the authors, although in some instances, to be fair, they are the distilled experiences of the author. What are your expert views? How can we best utilise your books to help us become more creative? Which titles should I go for in the first instance?
DM:   People write to persuade, to inform, and to entertain, …and perhaps, hope to make a living out of that! I have serious reservations about pet theories and ideal models. All theories and models are vulnerable and subject to the ‘gale forces of creative destruction’.

I also do not claim to have ‘expert’ views, albeit I am equipped with a measure of expertise in the disciplines and domains I address.

My books are specifically designed to help the reader act and interact with a smorgasbord of learning systems, based on rapid-fire, yet deep, insights. They will definitely make the reader, if he or she is an interactor, not only become more creative, but become transformed into an indefatigable learning superorganism. 

They could start with any title, but if learning systems is a priority, I would suggest ‘Unleashing Genius’; if creativity and innovation are top of the list, I would recommend ‘Brain Symphony’ and ‘Surfing the Intellect’.

For schools, I would recommend ‘Unleashing Genius’ and the forthcoming Learning Skills Trilogy: Brainchildren, Primary Genius, and BrainForce.
