  • what the whole creativity business is about
  • why you need to bother with it
  • clever methods to stimulate your brain into action
  • how to come up with a mass of ideas at a moment’s notice

Mind stretches and mental workouts will enable you to take effective notes and to absorb and structure information in a way that can easily be recalled.
