The Creative Process: Stories from the Arts and Sciences asks how celebrated works of art and breakthroughs in science came to be. What was the first inkling? What were the steps and missteps along the way? How was the process experienced by the creative person as it proceeded? And what are the implications for the psychology of the creative process? Each chapter focuses on a specific creative endeavor, situating the work in the context of domain, culture, and historical era. Then it traces the development of the work—from what we know of its beginnings to its fulfillment. Qualitative materials—interviews, notebooks, diaries, sketches, drafts, and other writings—allow a story of the creative process as lived to emerge. The narratives exemplify established concepts in the psychology of creativity, propose broadening some, reveal the need for modification, and suggest new ones. Application of phenomenological frameworks illuminate the episodes in new ways as well. The case study approach proves again that each episode is unique, yet themes and variations come into view when the episodes are considered together in a final reflection. From Darwin’s theory to an unusual jazz sound, here are 11 fascinating stories of how specific works took shape. Psychologists, students interested in creativity, and all those intrigued by the process in any creative field will find this book essential reading.

Merlin Thomas grows up in a blue-collar, working-class family during the forties and fifties. Even though he has a decent education, a keen mind, classic good looks, and no shortage of female attention, he isn’t content. He just can’t contain his disdain for the elitist world he is supposed to crave. After a serious auto accident cripples Ron Carter, one of his classmates—while Merlin is in the driver’s seat—Merlin decides to follow his ambitions to medical school, struggling to balance his uncontrolled lust for women with his commitment to academic success. His classmate, however, chooses a much darker path through life. Years later, Ron is now the head of a powerful crime syndicate, full of resentment and the desire for revenge. He offers Merlin the chance to pay off his excessive debts, and sooner than he realizes, the young doctor is caught up in a web of embezzlement, murder, and lies. Now Merlin is a wanted man, on the run from powerful enemies in a Mexican drug cartel. If he’s not careful, he’ll lose not only his freedom but his life. Will a staged death and escape into Mexico ensure his future?

Miles Davis was one of the crucial influences in the development of modern jazz. His Kind of Blue is an automatic inclusion in any critic's list of the great jazz albums, the one record people who own no other jazz records possess, and still sells 250,000 copies a year in the US alone. But Miles regularly changed styles, leaving his inimitable impact on many forms of jazz, whether he created them or simply developed the work of others, from modal jazz to be-bop, his seminal quintet and his big-band work, to the jazz funk experiments of later years. Miles not only knew and worked with everyone who was anyone in jazz, from Coltrane to Monk, he was a friend of Sartre's, lover of Juliette Greco and musical collaborator with musicians who ranged from Stockhausen to Hendrix. John Swzed is uniquely well-qualified to do justice to Miles, both in terms of his impact on jazz, and as one of the great Black Americans: as political figure, icon and archetypal cool dude. His book fills in the gaps left by myth-making about Miles' life - both by Miles himself and by his previous biographers - telling the story of his childhood, his depressions and his relationship with heroin as well as the more familiar public career.
