Random House presents the audiobook edition of The Creative Curve, written and read by Allen Gannett. Great ideas take something familiar and make it feel new. We´ve all heard the stories about creative geniuses - the young Mozart who effortlessly overshadows the hardworking Salieri; Paul McCartney coming up with the tune for ´´Yesterday´´ in a dream one morning; J.K. Rowling finding inspiration for Harry Potter sitting on a train to London. What we aren’t told is the real story behind such hits. In fact there is a science and method for mainstream success, whether writing a popular novel, starting a company or creating an effective marketing campaign, and in this book Allen Gannett - data wizard and successful entrepreneur - reveals the four laws of creativity that are proven to work. New ideas are surprising at first and slowly become familiar as we get used to them. Allan Gannett reveals there’s a sweet spot between what feels familiar and safe to us and what is innovative and new: the point of optimal tension between safety and surprise, similarity and difference. The people we think of as creative geniuses are people who understand this sweet spot instinctively; they know what people find familiar and reassuring, and they find ways to reinvent it fresh. Packed with stories and insights ranging from the team behind Dear Evan Hansen to the founder of Reddit, from the Chief Content Officer of Netflix to Michelin starred chefs, The Creative Curve will help you spend less time on ideas destined to fail and more time on ideas that really break out. This audiobook is for everyone, whether you’re a business leader, a creative artist or a budding entrepreneur - and will teach you the secret to conceiving great ideas that can achieve major success. 1.

Big data entrepreneur Allen Gannett overturns the mythology around creative genius and reveals the science and secrets behind achieving breakout commercial success in any field. We have been spoon-fed the notion that creativity is the province of genius - of those favored, brilliant few whose moments of insight arrive in unpredictable flashes of divine inspiration. And if we are not geniuses, we might as well pack it in and give up. Either we have that gift, or we don’t. But Allen shows that simply isn’t true. Recent research has shown that there is a predictable science behind achieving commercial success in any creative endeavor, from writing a popular novel to starting up a successful company to creating an effective marketing campaign. As the world’s most creative people have discovered, we are enticed by the novel and the familiar. By understanding the mechanics of what Gannett calls ´´the creative curve” - the point of optimal tension between the novel and the familiar - everyone can better engineer mainstream success. In a thoroughly entertaining book that describes the stories and insights of everyone from the Broadway team behind Dear Evan Hansen to the founder of Reddit, from the chief content officer of Netflix to Michelin star chefs, Gannett reveals the four laws of creative success and identifies the common patterns behind their achievements. 1.
