This book is divided into three parts. Part One: What is Creativity describes Visionary Creativity, Part Two: Becoming a Visionary Creative addresses how we must challenge established wisdom, and Part Three: Creating the Future looks at the stage on which Visionary Creatives are working today. Part One begins by differentiating Visionary Creativity from mastery, innovation, and ordinary creativity, and then looks at some examples of how Visionary Creativity is expressive of its culture. It is difficult for us to see our own culture, or even to recognize the concept of culture itself—we tend to see our world as “real,” and not one of many possible symbolic constructs, which we must do if we are going to understand Visionary Creativity.

One of his portraits is of a girl who attended a special inner city school that required long hours and lots of homework. After graduation, the girl got a good job as a bookkeeper. A laudable achievement, but it did not make her a mathematician. Gladwell could have told the story of George Bernard Dantzig. One day Dantzig, a graduate student at Berkeley, arrived late to a class in statistics and quickly copied down two problems from the blackboard that he thought were the homework assignment.
