Innovation for Underdogs: How to Make the Leap From What If to Now What by David Pensak

Have you ever wanted to change your life? Make it easier or, at least, get rid of the tough stuff? Have you ever simply asked yourself, "What if?" Anyone who wants a void filled, a problem solved, or a question answered, can learn to innovate. And it doesn't matter how much education you have or how high you sit on the corporate ladder. If you think that learning innovation means reading boring instructional manuals and paying a fortune for classes, you're wrong.

Innovation for Underdogs explains how innovation is a practical process, not some miraculous insight. Everyone can innovate! This book is a witty, intelligent, and humorous entry into the mind of one of the world's greatest innovators, Dr. David Pensak. Creator of the first Internet firewall, Dr. Pensak has amassed a huge wealth of innovation inspiration through his own critical work. But he's discovered some of the greatest truths about innovation through his experiences with others-his childhood lessons from Einstein, his work as a university professor, and his highly esteemed innovation lectures throughout the world.

This book shows the underdog (that would be you) how to dig to the root of your greatest problems and surface with solutions to make life a lot easier (and more lucrative!). Using entertaining, energetic, and enlightening stories from Dr. Pensak's experience, This book makes it clear that the underdog is bred for creativity. Within these pages, you will learn how to clearly define and solve a problem and how to market the solution. Filled to the brim with advice, examples, and exclusive interviews, Innovation for Underdogs is the creative person's best friend.
