How Reading Affects Creativity (with Jeff Brown)

When we talk about the creative process, what we’re really talking about is the ability to connect dots and make intuitive leaps. Sometimes those dots are previous projects we worked on, or experiences we had, and sometimes they are from things that we’ve read or studied along the way. Today, we’re going to talk about the value of reading to our creative process.  Our guest is Jeff Brown, author of the new book Read To Lead and host of the Read To Lead podcast.
