Co-authored with Sarah Miller Caldicott, the great grand niece of Thomas Edison, this book offers practical insights into the method of America’s supreme inventor.
Although Leonardo was probably the most creative person who ever lived, Thomas Edison is history’s greatest practical innovator. Beyond his invention of the phonograph, motion pictures and a system to light the world, Thomas Edison invented the rigorous, disciplined process of innovation.
In addition to creating the world’s first Industrial Research and Development laboratory, Edison was also a master at promoting a culture of innovation. Moreover, he understood that the principles of personal success and organizational innovation go hand-in-hand. Personal success and fulfillment requires you to learn how to think like an innovator; and, for your organization to be successful, innovation is now more important than ever.
This book is a must have for anyone who wants to turn creative ideas into profitable reality.
