Teresa Amabile, Harvard Business School and coauthor of The Progress Principle
"The Click Moment begins as a shocker, showing that we can't really predict much in a world that is becoming increasingly complex. Then, after shattering our illusions of control, Johansson gives us powerful tools for placing good bets in business, in everyday life, and even in love."
Marcus Samuelsson, Chef-owner of Red Rooster, Chef and co-founder of FoodRepublic.com
"We live in a world where we always want to stay connected and in control, and The Click Moment reveals how this mindset is stifling innovation. Frans Johansson shows the reader how to not only capture inspiration, but to change the world."
Sir Ken Robinson, New York Times bestselling author of The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything
"With his characteristic clarity, insight and style, Frans Johansson presents an absorbing account of the how randomness, serendipity and 'luck' can be used to enhance success in business and in your own life. A fascinating plunge into the riptides and cross currents of chance and opportunity that so often affect the course of human achievement."
The Medici Effect
The Medici Effect was an international bestseller that shattered assumptions about how great ideas happen, made BusinessWeek and Amazon's year-end "best-of" lists, and was translated into 18 languaged across the world. The book looks at how we have the best chance of breaking new ground when we combine ideas from different cultures, industries or fields. Frans Johansson takes the reader on a fascinating journey to the Intersection: a place where ideas and concepts from diverse industries, cultures, departments, and disciplines collide, ultimately igniting an explosion of ideas leading to extraordinary innovations.
What others have said:
Clayton Christensen, Harvard Business School and author of The Innovators Dilema
"The Medici Effect is one of the most insightful books about managing innovation I have ever read. Its assertion that breakthrough insights occur at novel intersections is an enduring principle of creativity that should guide innovators in every field."
Tom Freston, Former Chairman and CEO of MTV Networks
"The Medici Effect is a bold and original study of something that is generally thought to defy analysis-the nature of creativity and innovation."
"A Work of Art ... If you can't read it and come up with at least a minor Mona Lisa or two, you're not trying."
