I have the book and have read it twice, highlighted points through out, typed a summary and review it often but wanted to have it on audio to drill it's points into my memory better and not miss any points.
I have allot of books on business, innovation, product development etc. and this book is my number one and recommend it to any creative entrepeneur/inventor.
They did a nice job with this book explaining how Edison went about his innovation methods and also how you can apply these principles to today's world.
The authors wrote a well thought out book discussing the methods for some of the Edison labs' accomplishments. I only wish they would not have abridged the book for the audible version, however there is much to be gained by listening to the book, nonetheless.
“I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.”
― Thomas A. Edison
I enjoyed this book, it describes stories of Edison’s life and his method for success, perseverance, thinking, and idea creation. The book provides many practical and easy to use tools, exercises, and examples that anyone can use to enhance your creativity, entrepreneurial, and business sense.
One thing I did not like about this book is that certain topics within the book seem to be introduced and then abruptly ended with little depth where as other subjects are covered in sufficient depth. This is likely due to the abridgment. It’s too bad Audible doesn’t have and unabridged version. I would probably give this book 5 stars if it were unabridged.
