Product Description: For the first time in paperback–a volume of thirty-seven diabolically inventive stories, fables, and “impossible interviews” from one of the great fantasists of the 20th century, displaying the full breadth of his vision and wit. Written between 1943 and 1984 and masterfully translated by Tim Parks, the fictions in Numbers in the Dark display all of Calvino's dazzling gifts: whimsy and horror, exuberance of style, and a cheerful grasp of the absurdities of the human condition.

Managers of projects Should Untie Creative potential
Creative potential and innovation – magic wands. They provide projects with the expanded work. Eventually, two fundamental qualities PMI of all projects, progressive working out (repeating from concept to the ending deliverables) and the fact that all projects lead to unique results, demand, that managers of projects promoted such considerable quantity of creative potential as far as possible.
Apply methods which combine the left both right brain logic and creative potential.
Recreation: This technics demands, that you have asked questions on the project which will lead to new structures of references to old problems. Questions which set, can include: (a), What obvious facts of a situation and how they can be changed? (b), what typical complaints? (c), we search for what ideal situation?
The analysis of Area of Force: This method consists of identification of forces which promote or interfere with the problem decision. The creative reflexion is encouraged, clearly defining the purposes just as identifying forces to maximise and weaknesses, to minimise.
Sign listing: This approach concentrates on identifying process or product signs and how to improve one or many of them. It similarly to cause the field analysis, but sign listing provides neutral aspects contrary to negative or positive aspects of a problem.
Scamper: These stands of an acronym for Replacement, Associations, Adapt, Change, other uses into Which enter, Eliminate also Change or Reconstruct. Address to each of these problems and define, what new ideas appear.
Alternative Scenarios: Investigate the probable future for the project or a product, and you receive deeper understanding of potential environment in which to you, possibly, it is necessary to operate. Construct scenarios on the basis of the basic forces and influences. Business possibilities within these scenarios formulate the future strategy.
The compelled or Direct Association: Unite two concepts which have a little together, then spend collective discussion to pull possible relations between two. New approaches to old problems can end.
Project tree: This type of “a mind card” is useful, when the central theme, such as a product, the market or process should be based. Planning the connected ideas on the big sheet of paper literally, obvious results can be transformed to potential breaks. To be to conformable our intuitive common sense allows you to take that jump in manufacture of new ideas. Consider the following:
Images: Create multitouch images in the mind to address to a problem near at hand. Intuitive messages which “send” to you, can then to be applied to a problem near at hand. Images demand the softened mood, readiness to be not superficial and bright imagination.
Brainstorming: This general approach of generation of idea should suspend estimated judgements for the short-term. This technics is effective both at group and at private settlement. The problem should be near at hand declared in neutral terms.
Analogy: similarity between two conditions, differently dissimilar, is investigated. The personal analogy identifies you with object or process. The direct analogy compares the parallel facts in two various areas to make new decisions. The symbolical analogy uses the image which can be technically wrong but which describes values of key aspect of a problem.
Reflexion: This state of the strengthened understanding can release an internal source of creative potential.
In words Alan Kay of Apple Corporation, “the best way to predict the future consists in inventing it.”
