Where Good Ideas Come From

People often credit their ideas to individual “Eureka!” moments. But Steven Johnson shows how history tells a different story.

I really love the utterly captivating technique used, illustrations full of character and detail using only two colours.  Described by his peers as “thoughtful and lucid and charming and staggeringly smart”, and you can really see why.

Order the intriguing book “on a dizzying array of disciplines”, Where Good Ideas Come From, here.
