Do you have to have a tortured mind to create great art Not necessarily, but there certainly seems to be a correlation between the two Interesting, eclectic read that has depth without going all psycho babble. I found this work to be informative and even entertaining It was basically different profiles of talented and famous people who had a great a deal of pain or anguish in their lives and how it led to their creativity.
