More About Ed Young
Caldecott medalist Ed Young was born in Tientsin, China, and brought up in Shanghai. He cites the philosophy of Chinese painting as an inspiration for much of his work. "A Chinese painting is often accompanied by words," he explains; "they are complementary. There are things that words do that pictures never can, and likewise, there are images that words can never describe."
Mr. Young has been illustrating children's books for more than twenty years and has won many awards. He received the 1990 Caldecott Medal for his book Lon Po Po, and his much-lauded collaboration with anthologist Nancy Larrick, Cats Are Cats, was named one of the Ten Best Illustrated Books of 1988 by The New York Times.
Mr. Young studied at the University of Illinois, the Art Center of Los Angeles, and Pratt Institute in New York City. He and his family live in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York.

Reviews - What do customers think about Creative Leader?
BUY THIS BOOK! Feb 1, 2006
I have to admit, I bought The Creative Leader Wednesday, and now, Friday evening I am already finished. I could not put it down. It is filled to the brim and overflowing with Ed's amazing insight into the world of creative communication! Anyone, staff members, lay members, students, I repeat anyone who wants to serve God in the most cutting-edge and creative ways needs to read this book. I can't stress enough how much I have learned in the past few days, and I can not wait to begin applying the principles and suggestions Ed outlines to begin reaching people creatively and compassionately. I read it, and now I am going back through reading again, studying and taking notes. BUY THIS BOOK! It will change the way you do church. In Him, Michael Davila
Real Answers from a Dynamic Leader Jan 14, 2006
Ed has written a great book for pastors, church planters, and those with a stake in the local church.
He doesn't sugarcoat his leadership journey that began as a small church plant to one of the largest churches in America. One of my favorite chapters is "3 Things They Didn't Teach Me in Seminary."
Ed's unique leadership style and creative bent makes this book a must read. He gives a real insight into his church with help such as: how to improve your creativity, how to hire and fire staff members, etc. This book is unlike other leadership books that are mainly philosophical in nature.
I believe this book will give you real answers and fresh ideas to better lead in your own context.
