From the Publisher"A readable, thoughtful, provocative study of innovators and innovation in a variety of fields and endeavors... Narrative dominates here, and this would make an excellent textbook for gifted high-school classes and for team seminars in innovation and creative thinking. The stories she tells are lively and illuminating, and Ness is a superb writer." — Dallas Morning News
"In this intriguing book, Ness, an accomplished scientist/physician and an authority on innovation, sets out to 'unmask genius.' She examines outstanding intellects across a wide spectrum of disciplines—biology, education, physics, social psychology, medicine, chemistry, and so on. The discussion is fascinating, and Ness's prose is accessible. Of interest to anyone wanting to examine creativity and genius, this book is a suitable companion to Ness's other books, Innovation generation: How to Produce Creative and Useful Scientific Ideas (2012) and Creativity in the Sciences, cowritten with Michael Goodman and Aisha Dickerson (2013).
"Genius Unmasked is extremely well written, very interesting, and highly informative." - Dean Keith Simonton, PsycCRITIQUES
