Without planning to, I realise I’ve written two trilogies.
The first trilogy was my three books on genetics: Genome, Nature via Nurture and Francis Crick.
The second was my three books on innovation: The Rational Optimist, The Evolution of Everything and How Innovation Works
He found the time to write them all, butI’ll be lucky if I even find the time to read them all. But, hope to.
I can certainly recommend the one about How Innovation Works. One word summary: incrementally.
Expanded summary: Innovations happen when they’re ready, at which point they switch from impossible to inevitable with amazing suddenness, when everything all comes together. Individual inventors are over-rated; innovation is a team game. I think that’s about right.
