Creativity is not optional.
With her acclaimed New York Times bestseller (and Reese's Book Club pick) Fair Play, Eve Rodsky ignited a national conversation about greater equity in the home. But she soon realised that even when the domestic workload becomes more balanced, people still report something missing in their lives - that is, unless they prioritize and devote time for activities that not only fill their calendars but also unleash their creativity.
Rodsky calls this vital time Unicorn Space - the active and open pursuit of creative self-expression in any form that makes you uniquely you. To help readers embrace all the unlikely, surprising, and delightful places where their own Unicorn Space may be found, she speaks with trailblazers, thought leaders, academics, and countless others who have discovered theirs everywhere - from activism to artistic endeavors to second careers.
Rodsky reveals what researchers already know: Creativity is not optional. It's essential. Though most of us need to remind ourselves how and where to find it. With her trademark mix of research-based how-to advice and big-picture inspirational thinking, Rodsky shows you a clear path to reclaim your permission to have fun, mani fest your own Unicorn Space in an already too-busy life, and unleash your special gifts and talents into the world.
Eve Rodsky received her B.A. in economics and anthropology from the University of Michigan, and her J.D. from Harvard Law School. After working in foundation management at J.P. Morgan, she founded the Philanthropy Advisory Group to advise families and charitable foundations on best practices. Rodsky was raised by a single mum in New York City and now lives in Los Angeles with her husband and their three children.
