A small book about BIG ideas

A small book about BIG ideas

How anyone can learn to have more, brilliant ideas

About the Book

Millions of lines have been written about ideas and innovation and if you were to sit down to read them all you’d be sitting down for months. I can confidently say this because I have read just about all of them! (I have included an essential reading list at the end of the e-book).

There’s some wonderfully insightful reading to be done, but there’s a whole lot of intellectual babble as well. I’ve called this book the small book about BIG ideas not because I’m lazy (although I am short of time) but because I want to give as many people as possible the opportunity to pick-up some ideas (excuse the pun), insights and techniques to have more better ideas.
