Impressionism, the iPhone, democracy, Uber-when we think about creativity, we most often think of things. We also narrow in on the few, those rare creators who seem to have something we lack. These tendencies quickly take us off track, perpetuating a myth and unknowingly pushing us further away from the possible. Here's the truth: Creativity is about the possible. It's the seed of any human advancement ever made or yet to be imagined. Most important and powerful of all, creativity is a uniquely human capacity that each of us possesses-including you. The story of creativity is the story of who we are, a story still unfolding. It's time we come to understand it and learn how each of us can contribute our verse. It's time we understand this language of man and learn to speak creativity. The Language of Man provides more than needed understanding; it offers a powerful framework for creating. If you want to create or innovate, this book is indispensable.

Abstract : In two earlier occasions I have suggested water‐related books that I think all water professionals should read. And now, I am excited to offer my third edition of recommendations. This time I am recommending a novel based on actual water events that reads like a thrilling, implausible, man‐versus‐water's‐power adventure. My other recommendation is a fictional novel that paints a plausible and bleak water future full of battles for water, power, and survival. The connection is that the Colorado River is the lead character in both novels. The Emerald Mile: The Epic Story of the Fastest Ride in History Through the Heart of the Grand Canyon, by Kevin Fedarko. In contrast, the second book is The Water Knife, by Paulo Bacigalupi.
