Read full description of the books:This book is about Innovators, not inventors, although some innovators are inventors too. Innovators are the ones that can take a new idea and make something of it (Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Ted Turner, etc). This book is about a diverse group of innovators, in all areas, from powered flight to venture capital, credit ratings to MRI's, and what got them to where their innovation was recognized. This book gives you the history of these innovators and the people around them (both the good and the bad parts of their history) as well as a little bit of the innovation that they were behind. There is a lot of information here, be prepared for a lot of reading, but it is very interesting stuff, and written in a way that you can put it down for a while and pick it back up again with no problem.
