Product description


"...the book is interesting and well written, and provides an excellent introduction to the subject."

"...Sawyer managed to write an interesting and inspiring book that tries to capture the elusive phenomenon of interdependent performance in improvisation....the book offers interesting new perspectives and a theoretical elaboration that can contribute to a better foundation of analyses of improvisation in organizational settings. ....for scholars interested in improvisation in teams or organizations it is certainly worthwhile to study."

"Creativity across disciplines is a timely subject, and Sawyer combines a sophisticated analysis with a very lively, accessible--yet highly articulate--presentation. It fills a void in the existing literature. This book will have widespread appeal since it touches on virtually all disciplines."
Ed Sarath
Chair, Department of Jazz and Contemporary Improvisation, University of Michigan

"Sawyer has rapidly established himself as the primary expert on improvisational creativity and this book will be viewed as an important contribution to this previously neglected but theoretically and practically significant field. Group Creativity will be a valuable, influential, and widely-cited book."
David Harrington
University of California at Santa Cruz

"This book on improvisational creativity is a timely, interdisciplinary treatment of a neglected topic in the human sciences. Sawyer's theatre examples are delightful, his theoretical integration is learned and effective, his contribution to the creativity literature is substantial."
Vera John Steiner
Presidential Professor of Education and Linguistics, University of New Mexico; a
