Weaving the lives of scores of creative duos—from John Lennon and Paul McCartney to Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak—Joshua Wolf Shenk identifies the core qualities of that dizzying experience we call “chemistry.” Revealing the stages through which creative intimacy unfolds, Shenk builds an argument for the social foundations of creativity. Along the way, he reveals how the most successful creative pairs thrive on conflict; and why some pairs flame out while others endure.
