    How the world's leading innovators push their ideas to fruition, time and time again. Edison famously said that genius is 1 percent inspiration, 99 percent perspiration. Ideas for new businesses, solutions to the world's problems, and artistic breakthroughs are common, but great execution is rare. According to Scott Belsky, the capacity to make ideas happen can be strengthened by anyone willing to build their organizational habits and harness the forces of community.

    Amy says: "Great book. Great plan. Needs more Belsky."
    "Intro sounds good. The rest bad narration"
    Overall

    The introduction sounds good but the rest of the narration is very distracting. The narrator sounds like a 5 year old learning to read. Sorry this is my first review. I just had to warn other listeners. The information in the book is very valuable but the audio is almost unbearable. Please, I implore you to have it redone.

    Generoso Pope, Sr., an Italian immigrant, arrived in New York in 1906 with only pennies in his pocket. He got a job shoveling sand, but through his intelligence, he worked his way up to become the biggest provider of cement, just as it was becoming the key material for building. Gene Pope, Jr., was his father’s choice to inherit and run the business, but Gene’s mother and two brothers forced him out, and he found himself penniless and on his own. With a loan from his godfather, mobster Frank Costello, Gene bought the New York Enquirer. He renamed it the National Enquirer.
