One of our most innovative, popular thinkers takes on—in exhilarating style—one of our key questions: “Where do good ideas come from?”

With Where Good Ideas Come From, Steven Johnson pairs the insight of his bestselling Everything Bad Is Good for You and the dazzling erudition of The Ghost Map and The Invention of Air to address an urgent and universal question: What sparks the flash of brilliance? How does groundbreaking innovation happen?

Answering in his infectious, culturally omnivorous style, using his fluency in fields from neurobiology to popular culture, Johnson provides the complete, exciting, and encouraging story of how we generate the ideas that push our careers, our lives, our society, and our culture forward.

    " Good mix of historical example and practical applicable concept. He creates a framework for how to put yourself in a position to nurture innovation. Enjoyable. "

    " Johnson is a great writer, explaining complicated concepts clearly, but this book is his best yet. It makes the case for communal discovery better than any previous attempt. "

    " Honestly, I didnt quite follow the book. Out of my naivety I found it messy, boring and entangled. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Travis | 4/29/2011

    " More of a history than insight into the process of innovation. Summary: the adjacent possible (build on what is present), liquid networks (big cities, lots of people sharing ideas). Some history about Darwin and others. "
