Inside the Box - The creative method that works for everyone

Summary

Current business wisdom holds that to forge a powerfully original solution to problems, we must think outside the box. But, as Goldenberg and Boyd reveal, based on expertise and experience in both corporate and academic worlds, this is utterly wrong. It may seem counterintuitive - but faster, better and more original innovation and creativity comes from working inside your familiar world. 
 
The newest and most inventive ideas are much closer than you think, and can be found by using five simple techniques - subtraction, task, unification, multiplication, division and attribute dependency. This strategy helped Philips use subtraction to create the slim-line DVD players we use today, while attribute dependency allowed Domino's Pizza to corner the market with their thirty-minute delivery promise. 
 
These strategies can be used by anyone, from CEOs of multinational companies to the Chilean miners' rescue team and even leading jazz guitarist Bill Frisell, who actually restricts the range of his instrument to induce increased creativity. Intuitive, revelatory and easy-to-implement, these ideas will help you find the creative streak you never knew you had.

    The envious man finds superiority in others intolerable, and he wishes to level and equalize all things. Many sociologists and social scientists turn this hatred and resentment into "virtue" under the guise of "social science" by calling it a demand for fraternity and equality. 
    In this concise volume, Rushdoony uncovers the larceny in the heart of man and its results: class warfare and conflict society in which the rise of hostility and envy are seen as steps towards social progress, when in fact they lead to disaster. The political solutions posited lead to a inflationary economy and an overbearing state. 
    This book is a must-read to gain a biblical understand of the underlying tenets of this codified coveting and the only certain long-term cure.
