T was interesting There are some good lessons here for collaboration And yet my overall Feeling Was A Bit Meh was a bit meh think if one was interested in dance and Tharp in particular it would be a great combination of memoir and lessons in collaboration B I loved Tharp s book The Creative Habit and I se it in the course that I teach On Creativity The Collaborative Habit Creativity The Collaborative Habit on collaborating with different groups of people or organization and discusses ways to maximize collaboration without running into conflict Tharp explains to the reader how to plan out ideas create collaboration groups and work with a multitude of different personalities and roles She provides examples from her own experiences I find it dense than the Creative Habit work although several chapters can assist students in collaborative projects Wish I d Liked It MoreThe author a dancer and choreographer has had many opportunities to collaborate in her career and while she offers some interesting insights around the concept of collaboration I found the text disorganized and rambling throughout A bit stream of consciousness at times which I m certainly not opposed to in general but I freuently found myself asking Wait what was the original point here And then I d flip back a few pages to the section heading to remind myself It just didn t flow well I started the book months ago and kept putting it down in favor of something else But I do l Start to end brilliant anecdotes and thoughtfully crafted calls to reconsider our habits when collaborating with others This should be reuired reading for educators everywhere Were this not a our habits when collaborating with others This should be reuired reading for educators everywhere Were this not a book I would have ended Night of the Werewolf (Choose Your Own Nightmare, up highlighting every sentence Artist Trailblazer Narcissist World history is littered with thousands of such individuals Now add Dancer Choreographer Woman Inventor of Unusual Productions Involving Popular Music ArtistsThe list gets much smaller and invariably leads to Twyla Tharp This book is aick read following Lay My Burden Down up on the success of the brilliant and highly recommended The Creative Habit Overall while I found some of her advice and stories helpful it was difficult to overcome her grand sense of self Only a few times did any reverence for others appear For example on p 103 regarding a lecture she writes I don t cater to the audiencethe challenging the material the important it is not to dumb it down That statement sumsp much of Ms Tharp s worldviewI recommend reading The Creative Habit instead. O ballets for the Pacific Every chapter also features a collaborator or two highlighting lessons to learn and listen to from Duke's longtime basketball coach Mike Kryzyzewski to scientists Marie and Pierre Curie If collaboration as Tharp claims is truly the buzzword of the millennium then consider her as standard bearer motivator and philosopher Barbara Jacobs. ,
