This book is a grand and gratifying overview of the Innovators who have played a major role in forging today's dynamic technology and our high-tech society, with its main focus on the last 80 or so years. The book advocates focus, building from a position of strength, and being market-driven. It’s a great read to understand the differences in the practices of innovation and entrepreneurship and create the processes to make innovation projects successful in organizations.

Forgotten Creators (Vergessene Schöpfer) is an online reference book that was first released in February With over 3, pages, it covers revolutionary innovators and innovations that came out of the predominantly German-speaking scientific world during the period circa –, and what we can learn from them that could improve innovation in the modern world.   In San Francisco at SPTechCon, I slipped into a session Bill English was doing and he mentioned a book, Diffusion of Innovations. The context was that Bill was talking about where the groups innovators, early adopters, early majority, late majority, and laggards came from.

Price and Bruce A. Vojak. Lischka, Review of Innovators in Digital News The Journal of Media Innovations () 89 terms of digital challenges based on interviews. Thus, the study can be located within the process level within the typology of media innovations by Bleyen, Lindmark, Ranaivoson, and Ballon (). The book reveals remarkable insights for each.

The major point I want to make from the book is the importance diversity within teams has on innovations, rather than the theory of the lone genius.
