As I stated in an earlier post on this book, Johnson brings together how six basic technologies and innovations including glass, cold, sound, clean, time and light changed so many elements in our world. Even though this book is not very lengthy and can be read quickly, as I finished it, it made me consider building blocks and how I can use basic fundamentals in all aspects of my life to improve.
One of the most interesting quotes in the book from Steve Jobs on page 254 is:
“Don’t be trapped by dogma—which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.”
That is about as good as it gets my readers!!!
