Product description

Review

"The Power of Why changes the way you think. It gives you a new perspective, one that leads to positive change. This is a truly great book."—David Chilton, author of The Wealthy Barber and The Wealthy Barber Returns

"Packed with insights, analysis, and examples drawn from a wide range of individuals and companies, The Power of Why will convince readers of the profound value of the spirit of curiosity."—Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project

"There are books filled with anecdotes about innovation or you can read academic theories about innovation. Neither get you very far. What Amanda has done is offer interesting stories that are linked together in a way that teaches us the theories and just how to innovate."—Clayton M. Christensen, Harvard Business School professor and author of How Will You Measure Your Life

"The ability of a company to innovate is critical for survival let alone growth and The Power of Why provides great insights into how individuals can transform organizations and industries. A great read on how to find success."—Gordon M. Nixon, President and CEO, RBC

"It is standard fare for political and economic commentators to bemoan Canada’s lack of innovation and productivity. It is also standard fare that they rarely provide answers beyond their statement of concern. Amanda Lang has done much more than that. Her insight into what sparks curiosity and how it is the foundation of innovation and improved productivity should give pause for thought to all of those whose interests run the range from early learning to venture capital. The Power of Why shows us a way to a higher quality of life and to a stronger economy."—The Right Honourable Paul Martin

"This is a lot more than a business book, it’s a life book. Just pick it up for ten minutes and you'll find yourself thinking in some exciting, new, and yes, innovative ways."—Peter Mansbridge, chief correspondent for CBC News

"The Power of Why is a compelling and superbly written book showing how Canada can and must support creativity, starting in our schools, to fuel innovation and positive change."—David Miller, former mayor of Toronto

"A wonderful book, The Power of Why demystifies the tricky subject of innovation. It is a must-read for all innovation policy types and every budding innovator."—Roger Martin, Dean, Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto
