Siler (Breaking the Mind Barrier, LJ 1/91), founder of Psi-Phi Communications, a company specializing in multimedia learning materials, introduces "metaphorming"?an integrative, interdisciplinary approach to problem-solving and creative thinking. Siler provides a four-step process (connect, discover, invent, apply), an acronym (CREATE?Connect, Relate, Explore, Analyze, Transform, and Experience), and 31 metaphorms, or exercises in creativity and self-improvement, each illustrated with a drawing or humorous anecdote. A unique feature of the metaphorming process is expressing ideas as stories, metaphors, drawings, and models, and turning discoveries gleaned from these activities into inventions or practical applications. Stylistically, this book recalls Roger von Oech's A Whack on the Side of the Head (Warner, 1990), and some may prefer the approach in Jordan Ayan's Aha! 10 Ways To Free Your Creative Spirit and Find Great Ideas (LJ 4/1/97), but overall this is recommended for public libraries.?Lucille M. Boone, San Jose P.L., Cal.Copyright 1997 Reed Business Information, Inc.
