Great book to get the creative juices flowing. ( )

A wonderful book of ideas to explore the new and the everyday. Aimed at a general audience, the ideas can easily be experienced by adults and children. A timely read particularly before a vacation or even a staycation. ( )

Delightful collection of exercises/explorations! Certainly not everyone's cup of tea, but lovely for anyone looking for inspiration or a new artistic perspective. ( )

I enjoyed the ideas and the casual methods of incorporating these ideas into your life. ( )

Bought the book from the Ready Made magazine article, since it looked really interesting. Going to use the exercises (some as they are, some a bit more loosely fashioned) to help myself see and experience the world around me more fully, esp. appreciating the cityscape more. ( )

We shall not cease from exploration
And at the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for for the first time.
