Questlove-musician, bandleader, designer, producer, culinary entrepreneur, professor, and all-around cultural omnivore-shares his wisdom on the topics of inspiration and originality in a one-of-a-kind guide to living your best creative life.

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, Bjoerk, and others, Questlove speaks with the candor and enthusiasm that fans have come to expect. Creative Quest is many things-above all, a wise and wide-ranging conversation around the eternal mystery of creativity.

[Creative Quest] is an indispensable resource for anyone looking to understand the impulse, psychology and spark behind creative ideas. -- Rolling Stone Powered by the pistons of Questlove's ever-curious mind and his decades of experience in varied artistic projects with top entertainers, thinkers and creators, this book feels fresh and personal. Credible research is buttressed by here's how it played out for me stories, and his humor and geniality shine through -- BookPage Creative Quest is a comprehensive, funny, and honest exploration of artistic process. My favorite read this year. -- Donald Glover I read so many books, and I have time for so few of them. This book paid off every minute: I loved keeping company with Questlove's agile mind as he worked through the problems and promises of creativity. -- Issa Rae Creativity presents an opportunity for people from all walks of life to be heard. Questlove brilliantly delivers a must-read guide for all creatives, who desire to define and cultivate their own, unique voice. -- Lena Waithe [Questlove's] mind is literally a galaxy of stars.

I can't think of a person more suited to write a book about being creative. -- Jimmy Fallon Questlove's generous, provocative guidebook offers experienced wisdom about tapping into the creative process. -- Publishers Weekly Think of this book as a remix that might help you tap into your own creativity and trust your intuition. -- Esquire
