Weaving the lives of scores of creative duos – from John Lennon and Paul McCartney to Marie and Pierre Curie to Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak – Joshua Wolf Shenk identifies the core qualities of that dizzying experience we call “chemistry.” Revealing the six essential stages through which creative intimacy unfolds, Shenk draws on new scientific research and builds an argument for the social foundations of creativity – and the pair as its primary embodiment.
