We tend to think of great innovators as gifted, unique, and different from ordinary people. But are they really so different or is original thinking something anyone can learn?

Originals explores how innovators from business, science, technology, and the arts have overcome obstacles to meet their goals and achieve positive, innovative change, explaining how absolutely anyone can do this too. Empowering, inspiring, and informative, Originals teaches techniques for producing, refining, and presenting original ideas, laying out a detailed map so would-be innovators can discover their own original route to innovative thinking.

You will learn:

· How to come up with better, more original ideas

· How acknowledging weaknesses can make your ideas stronger and easier to sell

· That you don't have to risk all to win all.

    Of course, some original products are the result of innovators working only on a single idea until it is perfected, but these tend to be rare cases brought about by exceptional people. For most, the surest route to producing original ideas is to produce a lot of ideas. By not limiting your possibilities or committing all your time to refining one idea or product, you greatly increase the chance that you will come up with something original and pioneering.

    Studies have demonstrated that when something is presented in an entirely positive light, people begin immediately to search for the problems and the things they have not been told about. However, when they are confronted with the problems straight away, they trust that the person admitting this is self-aware, knowledgeable, and capable, and start focusing on the stronger aspects of the idea
