Fifteen-year-old Christopher Boone has Asperger's Syndrome, a condition similar to autism. He doesn't like to be touched or meet new people, he cannot make small talk, and he hates the colors brown and yellow. He is a math whiz with a very logical brain who loves solving puzzles that have definite answers.

Cute story but the narrator kept me interested when I may have given up if I were reading the book. The writing was clever and humorous. The characters were well developed but almost to a fault as the main character's behavioral traits left a few sections longer than was necessary to the story. I laughed out loud a few times and really enjoyed it overall.

The myth of innovation is that brilliant ideas leap fully formed from the minds of geniuses. The reality is that most innovations come from a process of rigorous examination through which great ideas are identified and developed before being realized as new offerings and capabilities. This is not a book by designers for designers; this is a book for creative leaders seeking to infuse design thinking into every level of an organization's products or service to drive new alternatives for business and society.

A very interesting book despite my perception of it being a bland topic! Well done.
