Stretching the analogy a bit too far....,
This review is from: Innovation for Underdogs: How to Make the Leap from What If to Now What (Hardcover)
I just didn't get this book. Dr Pensak stretches the "underdog" analogy too far. I didn't find anything here on any value. The more Dr Pensak highlighted his innovative past, the less I believed mere mortals could be creative - this is man who taught himself a computer language in a matter of days in order to write a computer programme to analyse a scientists stats. Now I do not believe this is something that 'just anybody' can achieve.
There are much better books on creativity and innovation around ("Sticky Wisdom" by WhatIf? is by far the best, to my mind) which do indeed show that creativity is in the hands of us all.
