“I’ll go to any length to give my ideas a better chance of becoming real. My Creative Space has armed me with science-backed tactics for transforming my space to do just that. Whatever your budget or lifestyle, if your creativity is important to you, you owe it to yourself to read this book.”  —David Kadavy, Author of The Heart to Start and Design for Hackers, host Love Your Work  

“If we want to be creative, we have to make the space to create. Donald Rattner's beautiful book My Creative Space expertly shows how our environments can be engineered for inspiration and innovation. Your home life and your creative work will benefit greatly from this thoughtful manual.” —Carolyn Gregoire, Writer and co-author of Wired to Create: Unravelling the Mysteries of the Creative Mind
