What People are saying about this

Tom Kelley
Breakthrough innovations are bridges to the future, and this book helps point the way. Drawing on deep and varied experience from PARC, The Stefiks highlight the secrets— and the challenges— of creating new product breakthroughs.

Michael Schrage
A surprisingly comprehensive survey and synthesis of innovation dynamics,and a book both useful and usable.

Peter J. Denning
The Stefiks focus on one of the most important sectors of innovations,those originating with breakthrough ideas. They deftly examine the kinds of observers that inventors must be—how they think and understand—to find a breakthrough idea and follow it through to a widely used technology. Inventor interviews, which liberally lace this librum, richly reward the reader.
