This is an outstanding collection of essays on innovation from the top academics in the field. Its written in a concise readable fashion and explores the history, organisation and management of innovation. A perfect introduction, reference book or source of in depth material for academics, students, managers and policy makers... highly recommended.

The Oxford Handbook of Innovation gives a concise but punchy view of the innovation scenario. Its introduction perhaps tells the whole story. The literature on innovation has exploded in recent years and you cant possibly expect to read everything. But with the Handbook, you at least know where to start, and can bite off little bits as you need. Dont expect it to cover everything though. Newer trends such as Open Innovation are not adequately covered. But it is still well worth it.

When I read this book for the first time I did not understood a word and I was so lost so I wrote a review based on my experience.
But I had a chance to do some background reading and then read the book it helped so if you are a person with no prior knowledge of innovation subject before you read this book try to understand the concept and then study then it is a good book and other than this this book is about concept of innovation with different features like MNC, national systems and networks .
