Lately I've been reading Scott Burkun's book, The Myths of Innovation.
I found it hard, when I first tried reading this book, to warm to it. The essay style didn't work for me. Perhaps I wasn't in the right frame of mind. Perhaps the thought of reading a whole bunch of essays didn't appeal. Who knows?
It bothered me because the book reviews are excellent and I really enjoy Scott's blog.
Then one day last week I opened the book at RANDOM - as much as your can in a Kindle - and started reading. Suddenly, I was enjoying the book. I've read quite a bit of the book this way now - flipping randomly about the place - and it's working for me. The book is full of brilliant observations and advice. The old photographs are fascinating too - especially the wooden mouse.
