    Description

    Innovation is the main event of the modern age, the reason we experience both dramatic improvements in our living standards and unsettling changes in our society. It is innovation that will shape the 21st century. Yet innovation remains a mysterious process, poorly understood by policy makers and businessmen alike. 

    Matt Ridley argues that we need to see innovation as an incremental, bottom-up, fortuitous process that happens as a direct result of the human habit of exchange, rather than an orderly, top-down process developing according to a plan. Innovation is crucially different from invention because it is the turning of inventions into things of practical and affordable use to people. It speeds up in some sectors and slows down in others. It is always a collective, collaborative phenomenon, involving trial and error, not a matter of lonely genius. It still cannot be modelled properly by economists, but it can easily be discouraged by politicians. Far from there being too much innovation, we may be on the brink of an innovation famine. 

    Ridley derives these and other lessons from the lively stories of scores of innovations - from steam engines to search engines - how they started and why they succeeded or failed.

    Commentaires

    "What a superb writer he is, and he seems to get better and better." (Richard Dawkins, author of The Selfish Gene)

    "An insightful and charming exploration of questions that range from the truly profound (How does our species capture energy to stave off decay and death?) to the merely fascinating (Why did it take us so long to invent the wheeled suitcase?)" (Steven Pinker, Johnstone professor, Harvard University, and author of Enlightenment Now)

    "From the Stone Age to smartphones and from farming to fission, Matt Ridley demonstrates with a plethora of examples how innovation has changed and, for the most part, improved the human condition, despite repeated resistance and frequent failure. Given the freedom of thought that innovation needs, he argues, we can ensure the survival of the planet. We abandon it or constrain it at our peril." (Sir Tim Laurence, chairman of English Heritage)

    Clear and relevant framework to innovate

    The author has identified a framework by which innovations appear, far from the "lone-inventor" idea, more like luck + spreading.
    Must-read if your are an entrepreneur, a scientist or simply curious.
    The book has many convincing examples from history, nature and today's industry.

    Insightful book but didn’t lived up to my expectations

    I found this book from Naval Ravikant’s podcast. There he spent 1:30 hours to praise this book. Although I learned a lot from How Innovation Works, but due to Naval’s adamant recommendations, I expected more. BTW, this book gives you a historical perspective to think about innovation.

    Insights through stories.

    Mr Ridley has given us amazing insights into what changes the world. This is the kind of work that should be on the shelf of everyone who wants to do something new, which should be everyone.

    How do we make this a compulsory reading for all in business and government bureaucracies and in academic ivory towers?
