    What sparks the flash of brilliance? How does groundbreaking innovation happen? 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.

    Roy says: "Ambitious"
    "Half a book"
    Overall

    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.

    Roshar is a world of stone and storms. Uncanny tempests of incredible power sweep across the rocky terrain so frequently that they have shaped ecology and civilization alike. Animals hide in shells, trees pull in branches, and grass retracts into the soilless ground. Cities are built only where the topography offers shelter. It has been centuries since the fall of the ten consecrated orders known as the Knights Radiant, but their Shardblades and Shardplate remain: mystical swords and suits of armor.

    "Stellar. Great writing, Great reading"
    Overall

    Wow. Awesome awesome book. Everything a good fantasy novel should be: Well-defined and described world, deep & colorful history behind the story, wonderful character development. Couldn't listen to it fast enough. Only problem: Now I have to wait for book #2 to come out!!!
