Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Prolific author Gelb (How To Think Like Leonardo da Vinci) and Caldicott, great-grandniece of Thomas A. Edison and head of her own innovation and marketing consulting firm, here divulge five "success secrets" inspired by Edison's creative thinking methods, also presenting examples of how these approaches can be applied in any organization or by any listener. Rick Adamson's (www.rickadamson.com) rich, solid narration finely complements the impressive material. Highly recommended for university libraries supporting business curricula and for larger public libraries. [Audio clip available through www.listenandlive.com.-Ed.]
