Creating Innovators: The Making of Young People Who Will Change the World

Book Review

By Stephanie S. Beecher

  
Finding a creative workforce to drive innovation is a top priority for employers. With a register of innovative workers, businesses can bring new products, services and jobs to the global economy.

But where does innovation come from?

In his new book, "Creating Innovators: The Making of Young People Who Will Change the World," author Tony Wagner explores the innovative minds of young American thinkers by returning to their childhood. There, Wagner discovers how adults nurtured imaginative play and other creative activities leading to "deep-seated interest, which in adolescence and adulthood blossom into a deeper purpose for career and life goals."

The book is available for $21.60 on http://800ceoread.com.
