In Creative Quest, Questlove synthesizes all the creative philosophies, lessons, and stories he's heard from the many creators and collaborators in his life, and reflects on his own experience, to advise listeners and fans on how to consider creativity and where to find it. He addresses many topics - what it means to be creative, how to find a mentor and serve as an apprentice, the wisdom of maintaining a creative network, coping with critics and the foibles of success, and the specific pitfalls of contemporary culture.

OK I admit, I am a huge fanboy of Questlove and the Roots, and always have been, so I may be a little biased but I thought this audiobook was outstanding in every way. Hearing anecdotes and allegories relating to the creative live and endeavours of one of the most important people in music today is a lesson that will resonate deeply with anyone pursuing creative endeavours or seeking inspiration. This book covers the mechanics of creativity, examines them in detail but in illuminating ways that shows how they can be applied to your own life and projects. I gained a lot of new insights into the creative process and am already listening to it again. As a fan of the brilliant Questlove Supreme podcast on Pandora, I can assure you that the quality and detail is replicated in this production. Questlove's writing ability has certainly taken major steps since his memoir and I sincerely hope this is just the beginning. He is such an incredible resource for musical knowledge and pop culture and this is reflected throughout this work, I cannot recommend it enough, thank you Amir for this gem!
