I enjoyed reading this book by Praveen Gupta. I saw Mr. Gupta speak in Seattle in June, and purchased his book following that event. I think there are some profound truths here, and Mr. Gupta's stories are insightful and interesting. At times, the writing style becomes repetitive, but I would recommend the Innovation Solution to those seeking the illusive "key to innovation' in today's business.

creates an innovation definition, which is a good one (as innovation is loosely defined)
practical and correct in assumption that innovation is becoming a formal business process
like the certification process and the source links at the end of the book.
