One of our most inventive thinkers, Steven Johnson is a leading light of today’s interdisciplinary, collaborative, open-minded approach to innovation and his writings have influenced everything from cutting-edge ideas in urban planning to the fight against terrorism. He is the bestselling author of nine books – including Where Good Ideas Come From: The Natural History of Innovation and How We Got to Now. In his latest book, Wonderland, Johnson shows how the pursuit of wonder is a powerful driver of world-shaping technological change, and that future is found wherever people are having the most fun.
