The History and Future of Innovation

Innovation is not just tools and toys - it's ways of thinking, doing, and seeing the world as it might be. Using "big history" techniques, Husick explores the topic from dozens of angles, and in the process, entertains and teaches his audience how to become more innovative in their own field.
