    This book explains the life cycle of innovation process - starting from conception of an idea, idea refinement, product development and product obsolescence. The good part is that it has compared the life of idea to life of a human being which makes reading interesting but examples covered in the book are not very structured and places at random places. Some concepts go out of the flow and structure and one wonders about the fitment of the same in the chapter. It could be a read if you want to k This book explains the life cycle of innovation process - starting from conception of an idea, idea refinement, product development and product obsolescence.

    This book tells us about how an idea in our mind finds its way to become an innovation. The author has compared the life of idea to life of a human being which makes reading interesting but examples covered in the book are not very structured and placed at random places. Some concepts go out of the flow and one wonders about how things fit in their place.

    The book is rich in Indian anecdotes, making it all the more interesting and knowledgeable but I feel the packaging or the story line connecting the entire learning, some of which are very good for young professionals could have been bettered than Resembeling it with stages of life.

    There were excellent examples in the book but i felt they were not organized well. Was hard for me to get a flow. Some examples seemed out of place from what was being discussed. However, the research that had gone into the book is commendable.
