5.0 out of 5 stars Practical and Motivational, April 27, 2011

This review is from: The Idea Hunter: How to Find the Best Ideas and Make them Happen (Hardcover)
A friend who knows one of the authors (Andy Boynton) recommended this book to me and I was inititally a little skeptical. In my organization I often feel that we are dealing with too many ideas and the challenge is in picking and choosing. I certainly wasn't in the market for a book that would tell me how to find more ideas. As it turns out, this book was actually quite helpful to me in my situation. It provided a useful framework for how to evaluate ideas and how to decide which ones will be mission critical to our organization and which ones need to be weeded out. I just read "Moonwalking with Einstein" which focuses on "deliberate practice" as a technique for developing expertise in an organization or an individual pursuit. I felt that the Idea Hunter picked up on that theme, in that it does not just give examples of great ideas or idea hunters, but it describes the process that leads to the successful implementation of high impact ideas. Bottom line: The Idea Hunter was both interesting and fun to read but it also left me with with practical idea hunting techniques that I know I will incorporate in mu work.

wasn't "Moonwalking with Einstein" a book about memory? I don't think it had anything to do with idea generation
