The Innovator’s Cookbook: Essentials for Inventing What Is Next
In Stephen Johnson’s exciting book on creating, it seems he’s called upon an all-star cast of inventors and researchers to discuss what makes for successful innovation. The tenets of innovation presented here sound very similar to Joshua Foer’s rules for becoming an expert. It seems that experience and research both show that forcing yourself out of your comfort zone and taking risks is integral to building new skills and finding success in new projects. This, and Johnson’s other book Where Good Ideas Come From, are staples we return to again and again.
