Description
A fascinating deep dive on innovation from the New York Times bestselling author of How We Got To Now and FarsightedThe printing press, the pencil, the flush toilet, the battery—these are all great ideas.

How do we generate the breakthrough technologies that push forward our lives, our society, our culture? Steven Johnson's answers are revelatory as he identifies the seven key patterns behind genuine innovation, and traces them across time and disciplines.
