Helpful and clearly explained.

This book is useful to the extent that it identifies and rationalises the things that those of an innovative mind already do, but not necessarily to the degree, emphasis and interconnectedness that would make them more effective innovators.
In addition, the principles described in this book, can be applied to a broad range of activities, such as pertain to industry and the liberal arts. Which is not surprising, since the development of an innovator's increased powers of association, are to be derived from a broad range of influences, as described for the Steve Jobs' example.
The website material that is mentioned in the book is also a useful adjunct, since it provides the means with which to self-assess one's potential as an innovator, and provides guidance about how one may take steps to improve one's potential as an innovator who is better able to prosper in an increasingly globalized and knowledge dependent economy.
