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.

    Story
    Would you listen to Where Good Ideas Come From again? Why?

    This book was so good that I have already listened to it twice and I bought a paper copy of it. I wanted to listen again because some of the points that were made were so important that I wanted to be sure that I absorbed them completely (the adjacent possible, liquid networks, intellectual property, the history of innovation...)


    What other book might you compare Where Good Ideas Come From to and why?

    I would compare this book to Tipping Point by Gladwell because it offers a new way of looking at something and the book brings together many disparate concepts in a way that helps the reader to make sense of innovation and what can be done when we tap into our innovations.


    What does Eric Singer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Eric Singer has a great voice and he reads clearly and at a great pace. He really draws you into the story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I was fortunate to be driving from San Diego to San Luis Obispo so I was able to listen to whole way there and then I listened on the say back. In fact, I was so into the book that I got a speeding ticket along the way....


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you for writing this book! I bought copies for my three work partners and they have already listened to and read the book.
