I enjoyed this book! It provides a compendium of stories about the diverse set of individuals who must collaborate to make innovation successful. Some tales are uplifting, some discouraging, some challenging—but all are enlightening. Inventors, innovation managers, business leaders, and policymakers can each gain deeper insight into their role in making innovation happen.
