Good book to read for ideas and innovations. Many of the anecdotes are very helpful, and some ideas overlap with another book written by Dr. Seelig, inGenius. Some of it feels like a self help book, which will be helpful to some readers and will deter others. A worthwhile read for the suggestions on refraining, exceeding expectations, and how to conduct yourself around others.
