Thinking Like Einstein by Thomas G. West
Book DescriptionWest investigates the new worlds of visual thinking, insight, and creativity made possible by computer graphics and information visualisation technologies. He argues that, with the rapid spread of inexpensive and powerful computers, we are now at the beginning of a major transition, moving from an old world based mainly on words and numbers to a new world where high level work in all fields will eventually involve insights based on the display and manipulation of complex information using moving computer images.

In the Mind's Eye, Hardback (September 1997)
Some of our most original intellects Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Lewis Carroll, and Winston Churchill relied heavily on visual modes of thought, processing information in terms of images instead of words or numbers. This work probes data on dyslexics to see how computers enhance the creative potential of visual thinkers.
