"Tidd and Bessant s text has become a standard for students and practitioners of innovation. They offer a lively account on innovation management full of interesting and new examples, but one that at the same time is rigorously anchored in what we have learned over the last thirty years on how to manage that ultimate business challenge of renewing products, processes, and business models. Those who want to innovate must read this book."
Professor Arnoud De Meyer, Director, Judge Business School, University of Cambridge, UK
"Innovation matters and this book by two leaders in the field which is clear and practical as well as rigorous should be essential reading for all seeking to study or to become involved in innovation."
Chris Voss, Professor of Operations and Technology Management, London Business School, UK

A pedagogic tool that will work at multiple levels for those wishing to gain deeper insights into some of the most challenging and important management issues of the day."
David J. Teece, Thomas W. Tusher Professor in Global Business, Haas School of Business, University of California, Berkeley, USA

To sum it up, It's a cheap and poorly done knock-off, but still the same book.
The fact is that this book is very practical tool for students and managers.It provides the reader with a great variety of case studies and ways that companies and organizations failed or achieved in innovating.It has really helped me to understand what innovation is all about and comparing it with other books that deal with the same topic i think its one of the bests.
The book is good exactly _because_ it explains complex concepts in an uncomplicated, straightforward way and enables the reader to grasp the most important notions quickly and thoroughly. There is a number of key studies that show how the processes explained in the book are applied in the real world.
So yeah, in my opinion, if the reader is looking for a classical academic piece with extremely complex notions that are never used in everyday or business language but sound "smart", quantitative analyses of data just for the sake of analysis with results you can't use, and with examples that can never be applied to the real world, buy something else.
And I apologise to everyone reading this but I must resort to the lowest action of all in written debate - an ad hominem attack, although a well deserved one. Hey Chris, if you really think any crucial managerial insight can be gained by watching a TV programme aimed to entertain the general public, like the Dragon's Den, then it is obvious you didn't read the book. Oh, and that you watch TV way too much.
The publication by Joe Tidd, John Bessant and Keith Pavitt on "Managing Innovation - Integrating Technological, Market and Organizational Change" is clearly a book which is interdisciplinary, multifunctional and integrative and adds value. The rich knowledge of the three authors is based on own research, consulting and teaching experiences at Imperial College Management School at the University of London, the Centre for Research in Innovation Management at the University of Brighton and the Science Policy Research Unit at the University of Sussex. These own experiences and the broad analysis of the "classical" and latest management research make the book very valuable...
"Managing Innovation" wants to equip readers with the knowledge to understand and skills to manage innovation, both at the operational and strategic level. The book aims to integrate the management of market, technological and organizational change to improve the competitiveness of firms and effectiveness of other organizations. Although a large number of differing theoretical approaches are reviewed and regarded by the authors, the theoretical roots lie very much in economies of innovation and the evolutionary economics (for instance, Dosi, Freeman, Nelson and Winter, Pavitt, Penrose), theories on organizational learning and knowledge creation (e.g. Argyres, Leonard-Barton, Nonaka and Takeuchi, or Schein) and competence-based theories of the firm (e.g. Hamel and Prahalad, or Teece and Pisano). One important value-added of the book is the integration of various theoretical approaches - each of which is subject to lively discussion among management researchers and practitioners - which in the past have stood alone and for themselves...The overall structure of the book is clear, the given boxes and examples very illustrative and the hints on further reading very helpful and, all in all, serves the needs of both the targeted management students and practitioners...The broad use and review of literature in the field of innovation management and the illustrative examples make this book a rewarding read for management practitioners, students and researchers. This book is warmly recommended for all who are interested in innovation management. - Prof. Dr. Guido Reger, University of Applied Sciences, Brandenburg, Germany.
