    I'll briefly paraphrase Innovate Like Edison here Edison was incredibly brilliant Here's something Stephen Covey wrote about Edison wasn't just incredibly brilliant he was sooooo coooool Here's a uote from Malcolm Gladwell's latest book Edison was supercalifragilisticexpialidocious That's from Mary Poppins Innovate Like Edison is a sycophantic superficial history of Edison mixed with cursory highlights from the business and self help literature The fawning descriptions of Edison were outright painful to listen to by the end of the book The added barrage of worthless jargon eg super value brought me close to chucking my mp3 player out the car window many timesI bump my rating up to two stars it was ok because I did learn a few things from the book and Rick Adamson's reading for the audiobook was very good But I stop at two stars because when I was done I wish I had spent those 5 12 hours on any of the books uoted by Innovate Like Edison rather than on the book itself

    If you need a creative boost this is a good book to read I loved to read about the way Edison would only invent thing people would buy


  3. says:

    No wonder why Edison was so successful He was not only a great inventor and innovator but also emphasized networking marketing building an innovative environment and creating value Although he often was the first to conceive of an idea as evidenced by his many patents sometimes he wasn't always the first but he was able to brilliantly market and innovate to create value for customers He believed strongly in persistence and learning from failures Gelb outlines many principles to follow in order to imitate Edison's success The book focused on Edison and might've worshiped Edison a bit much but the title makes you expect that Good read to get an overview of how Edison created businesses with his inventions Inventors and tech business people should familiarize themselves with the principles in this book

    Gelb's work definitely contains some valuable self help nuggets that can be applied to general problem solving One such nugget involves Edison's use of mind maps that help individuals physically chart strategies for tackling problems The book focuses on how failure is often critical to future success and how optimism can shape results It also explores some of Edison's well known mantras example make everything as simple as possible but no any simpler In all candor some of the book was a bit dry and seemed unnecessarily redundant in a few spots and I'm a big fan of business books But overall I'm glad I took the time to read it

    Michael Gelb’s follow up to How to Think Like Leonardo da Vinci could have easily been called How to Think like Thomas Edison If you want to learn about how the brain works and how you can apply time tested principles that lead to innovation Innovate like Edison is the first book that you should read Just as Edison released his inner genius Gelb and Caldicott’s five principles provide a framework for releasing your own Through a Solution Center Mindset readers discover the power of focusing the mind Kaleidoscopic Thinking conveys the importance of making connections and identifying patterns between seemingly unrelated items or processes Full Spectrum Engagement perhaps even important today than in Edison’s time teaches how to balance multiple priorities both at work and in life Master Mind Collaboration demonstrates that two brains are better than one and addresses the critical need for teamwork Super Value Creation keeps the innovator focused on creating something that satisfies a current or projected neededOn a personal level as an author and speaker on the DISC behavioral styles Gelb and Calidicott helped me to better understand a person with the rare combination of big picture out of the box thinking with a detail oriented logical and analytical mind In DISC lingo I learned that Edison embodies the Interactive Conscientious IC style

    I loved how Edison framed his work balanced work with play and read everything This book is really a blueprint for critical I am trying to incorporate a few changes at a time I want to embrace keeping a journal so far I am wildly unsuccessful
