Here are five books recommended by Andy Green of the Flexible Thinking Forum to catch up on during the Twixtmas break:

1 ‘The Book of Gossage’ A professional hero of Andy Green, the great American copywriter, pioneer of ‘integrated campaigns’ and respected as ‘the Socrates of San Francisco’.
2 Daniel Kahneman ‘Thinking fast, and slow’ profound implications on how we think – and Andy is developing new insights on creativity.
3 ‘Last Tango in Aberystwyth’ by Malcolm Pryce.  A wonderfully surreal Pythonesque world somehow spanning and satirising the detective novel genre and Welsh culture.
4 Richard Wiseman ’59 Seconds’ – is a great introduction to understanding psychology and its implications for modern-day life.
5 ‘Visual meetings’ David Sibbet – a great read for anyone involved in helping or facilitating others to generate new ideas or the inspiring Dan Roam ‘Unfolding the Napkin’ are great reads of this year for anyone interested in developing their creativity and innovation skills.
