Summary
Johnson addresses an urgent and universal question: What sparks the flash of brilliance? How does groundbreaking innovation happen? He provides the complete, exciting, and encouraging story of how the ideas are born that push careers, lives, society, and culture forward
Summary
Beginning with Charles Darwin's first encounter with the teeming ecosystem of the coral reef and drawing connections to the hyperproductivity of modern megacities and to the instant success of YouTube, Steven Johnson begs the question: What kind of environment fosters the development of good ideas? His answers are never less than revelatory, convincing, and inspiring as Johnson identifies the seven key principles to the genesis of such ideas, and traces them across time and disciplines
