The Shape of Ideas

Happy one year anniversary of the publication of THE SHAPE OF IDEAS! I’m thrilled it’s found its way to bookshelves of readers and creative people all over the world. So far It’s been translated into French, Russian, and Taiwanese editions - with Vietnamese, Thai, Korean, Indonesian, Greek, and Chinese still to come. Thanks to all of you for supporting my work over this crazy and wonderful year.
