“…The book emphasizes the importance of putting in place the appropriate structures and cultures for innovation to function in a corporate setting…The arguments are made less with text and more with symbols, quotes and original, high-quality artwork, presented in a stunning graphic layout. This encourages the reader to look at innovation from a very unusual angle and with a very original frame of reference – something we know promotes creative thinking! …For these reasons and for its highly original layout and presentation, this book stands out in the mass of books on innovation. It deserves attention and it deserves to be read by all practitioners interested in integrating innovation in their organizations.”
