Summary Questlove -- musician, bandleader, designer, producer, culinary entrepreneur, professor, and all-around cultural omnivore -- offers insight into building the best creative life and how to let the best creative life build you. He synthesizes all the creative philosophies, lessons, and stories he's heard from the many creators and collaborators in his life, and reflects on his own experience, to advise how to consider creativity and where to find it. He addresses what it means to be creative, how to find a mentor and serve as an apprentice, the wisdom of maintaining a creative network, coping with critics and the foibles of success, and the specific pitfalls of contemporary culture. Whether discussing his own life or channeling the lessons he's learned from forefathers such as George Clinton, collaborators like D'Angelo, or like-minded artists including Ava DuVernay, David Byrne, Björk, and others, Questlove speaks with candor and enthusiasm about the eternal mystery of creativity.
