Taking a Peek Inside "The Innovator's Cookbook"
By Rich Fisher
Tulsa, OK – On today's ST, we welcome back Steven Johnson, the best-selling and award-winning author of several books on science and technology. His latest book (just out in paperback) is "Where Good Ideas Come From: The Natural History of Innovation" --- and we had him on our show when that book first appeared. But today we're chatting with Johnson about another book (which is also available in paperback) --- it's a collection of essays and transcribed conversations that Johnson has edited and written an introduction for: "The Innovator's Cookbook: Essentials for Inventing What Is Next." In this anthology, we find insightful (and invariably interesting) contributions from the likes of Stewart Brand, Clayton Christensen, Richard Florida, Peter Drucker, and others. The book's conversations include innovation-focused dialogues involving the likes of Ray Ozzie, Katie Salen, Tom Kelley, and Brian Eno.
