This is nonfiction, not a novel or a historical re-enactment. The narrator breaks out into English and French accents whenever he can, which is very distracting.
Interesting title, with many examples. Slightly short on substance, I think the author could have elaborated more on his theories for these topics.
Where do good ideas come from? The brain. If that appeals to you, if you believe you are nothing but the some total of your body and it's organs, then this book will appeal to you. If not, I suggest looking elsewhere.
Could have been a LOT better. Interesting information on innovation, but I couldn't tell most of the time whether it was a book on how wonderful biological evolution is, or on where good ideas come from. Very frustrating.
Oh - and the "impersonations" by the reader - really distracting from the content.
