by Tim Coffey, Dave Siegel, and Mark Smith

Many myths and "mythstakes" (truths that have been misapplied) held by today's businessmen and innovators  have made the job of innovation even more difficult and riskier than it needs to be. Myths about failure rates, finding opportunities, ideation, what is needed, how to get great performance, and many more.

This book will help you understand the roadblocks and challenges of innovation, and how to overcome them. Once the myths are debunked, you will be on your way to becoming a better innovator.
