In cartoons, bright ideas flash in little bubbles; in real life, they happen more mysteriously. Steven Johnson's Where Good Ideas Come From probes the synergy that transformed Charles Darwin from a somewhat aimless young gentleman naturalist into a Great Thinker who remade our world. To answer why some ideas like FaceBook and YouTube work while whole committees of intellectuals flounder, Johnson identifies seven key principles to the genesis and sustenance of good ideas. This fascinating book won't make you the next Bill Gates or Steve Jobs, but it will help you understand why true groundbreakers strike gold.
