knows a thing or two about the history of science, is a first-rate
storyteller."--"The New York Times"
"A vision of innovation and ideas that is resolutely social, dynamic and material...Fluidly written, entertaining and smart without being arcane."--"Los Angeles Times"
"A magical mystery tour of the history and architecture of innovation."--"The Oregonian"
"A rapid-fire tour of 'spaces' large, small, mental, physical, and otherwise... Where Good Ideas Come From may be the ultimate distillation of his thinking on these issues... One admires the intellectual athleticism of Johnson's maneuvers here."--"Boston Globe"
