economic history has been heavily influenced by mobile go-getters - young entrepreneurs, inventors, skilled laborers, and innovators. That appears to still be the case today, as both foreign and domestic go-getters are attracted to high-skilled jobs and high-risk opportunities. What parts of the United States are particularly attractive to these workers, and what characteristics attract.

Draws on the examples of the iconic American innovator to counsel modern inventors on how to harness innovative potential, outlining an accessible system designed to help readers compete and win in today's competitive business arenas. 35,000 first printing.

The fundamental premise of this book is that Innovation is a Science not an art form. It can be practiced and honed to a superior skill by anyone or any collaborative group.

I had the pleasure of hearing Sarah Miller Caldicott, the great grandniece of Thomas Edison and co-author of this book, back in October, 2011. She was presenting the concepts found in this book to a group of business leaders. The presentation intrigued me enough to seek out the book and devour it.

The book breaks down the process of systematic innovation into five clearly-defined and actionable competencies with five supporting elements under each competency. This step-by-step outline to innovation is vastly different than many theories of innovation which focus more on the creative process. These other approaches can oftentimes be difficult to operationalize in a corporate environment.

Interspersed with the nuts and bolts of the Innovate Like Edison process are fascinating facts about Thomas Edison and his colleagues. I found the photos and his hand drawings of innovations intriguing. It is particularly impressive to see a simple line sketch drawing of an idea juxtaposed with the version which was used as visual support for Edison's patent application for the incandescent light bulb.

I particularly liked the concept of keeping a notebook to foster and capture creative thinking. Coupled with the suggestion to use drawings and doodles to capture ideas rather than just words, this is definitely a unique approach unlike others I have been exposed to.

The Literacy Blueprint at the back of Part Two is a wonderful summation of the Edison Innovation Process. I also found the self assessment and competency tools to be very actionable.

I recommend this book for all people who are seeking to jump-start the innovation process in their organization. This is not just for R&D.

Michael Gelb does a great job of weaving the story of Edison's life with the lessons that Edision taught us. In the end, you understand the man (including his faults) and the processes for innovation that he developed and perfected.

Good book but if using for school...buy audiobook...you will pick up the key concepts.

What can I say? This book is the best book on innovation I have ever read. It not only dives deep into the mind and spirit of Edison, but also provides a great look at the human side of this fascinating man. This book brings to light that not only is innovation the big idea, but also the marketing, manufacturing, and big picture thinking necessary for an invention to be successful in the marketplace. The author does a great job of helping one understand the true nature of innovation. It's not a lone genius in a garage, it's often a team of passionate optimistic people driving toward a common goal with a "failure is not an option" attitude. This book brings together all aspects of current and past information related to innovation. It is not only a great read, but an impressive reference guide. WOW! I look forward to reading other books by the authors.

This book is for those who love to innovate, invent, and imagine whatever it is you desire. If this book does not make you better at what you do, I don't know what can. The way he breaks down everything is so thorough. Greatly detailed book. I recommend this to all entrepreneurs, inventors, and people who just want to become a better creative person. This will remain with me for the rest of my life. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. 5 stars.

I purchased this book for my son in college who is studying to be a mechanical engineer. He found this book at the library and read it cover to cover. He now has his own copy which he is enjoying again....making notes and highlighting to his heart's content. If you are curious about an inventor's mind and Edison's background then this book is for you.

After reading hundreds of books in the last few years, this book is so wonderful it stands out. It is not only about how Edison thought and the strategies he used to become the one of the most successful inventors in history, but also about how to use these principles to succeed in your own life.

This book breaks down Edison's thinking and actions into 25 simple and actionable strategies. It also offers a wealth of information about the latest success technologies that we can use to improve our lives: Photoreading, TRIZ (never heard of it until I read this book), mindmapping, speedreading, etc. This book is full of references and resources to innovate and improve every area of life.

One of the best books in the last few years. Outstanding.
Terrific price. He got a great grade in the course, so I guess the book did the job it was purchased for.
