Love the ‘writing on the sofa’ incident and why his daughter defaced it and how the author reacted to it!”

“You are more creative than you think!
A quick read with long-term benefits, Blow the Lid Off is both an inspirational as well as an informational book masterfully written. The book expands our concept of creativity to apply to all aspects of our lives and careers and doesn’t limit it to the realm of the fine arts. By doing so, it offers readers the opportunity to look differently at everything we engage in from jobs to relationships to leisure activities to self-growth. Author Robert Belle offers new insight on how to take constructive risks that foster growth, build confidence, facilitate work-life balance, and turn the light bulb of our imagination on. Belle has a unique gift for presenting the concept of creativity in ways that readers can understand and apply to their own lives and move from self-hope to self-help. Testament to Belle’s writing talent is how thorough Blow the Lid Off is researched without making it a laborious read. I am now a Robert Belle fan!”
“…very insightful, very well-researched, and very inspirational. The author excels at encouraging the reader to overcome self-doubts and utilize their creative gifts. As a parent, I am certainly glad that I read this, and I will definitely incorporate the principles of this book as I encourage my own children to use their creativity. Great read!”
“Inspiring short read about how to harness your creativity.
I have read tons of self-help books but really love the message of this one. If you’re stuck in a rut it can be hard to trust yourself and take risks. This book is a great inspiration/guidebook for how to make your creativity work for you and feel good about the things you create. Definitely worth the read.”
“This book is quite inspiring. I found myself reading passages to my wife so we could share the information together. A very well-researched book to make you really think about living intentionally and creatively. Also includes some exercises, steps and real-world examples to help you unleash your creativity and help yourself.”
“This is an interesting, informative book on various aspects of unleashing one’s creativity, supported by some data and science behind it. To start off with, it starts off with an inspiring quote on being creative and productive, and not living somebody else’s life. The clash between creativity and productivity is highlighted. The left brain and the right brain. I liked the author’s views on education sometimes not providing the correct platform to explore creativity. The book has several wise quotes strewn around; for example, I liked the passage: “School rewards people for their memory. Life rewards people for their imagination. School rewards caution; life rewards daring. Make the world your classroom and not the classroom yourworld.” Coming to the presentation, I liked the takeaway sections at the end of chapters, and also, the page for scribbling in notes. These small things are actually reasonably useful, instead of scribbling notes along edges. Overall, a satisfactory read, albeit I feel it is perhaps a trifle overpriced for its amount and depth of content.”
“I am a creative person, so I was curious about this book. The words written even helped me. A creative person or not, you will get something great from this book.”
“I really enjoyed the writing of this author. As someone who is fascinated by the subject of creativity, I was able to take some concrete ideas and takeaways from this book.”
“It’s on point…I am also excited, and encouraged, to see the author’s effort, together with others, in reshaping the education system, to encourage more creativity. Well done!”
“Through blowing the lid off, Robert affirms the creativity inherent in every human and the opportunities it creates. Through narratives from his life and history, he shows how freedom to express our gifts has potential to transform lives and society. The book is especially useful to people on the creative journey who need guidance on making a living out of their enterprise.”
