Jerry Woodall –
Kudos to the authors of Inside Real Innovation. After debunking the age-old dogma about real innovation being a linear process, they clearly demonstrate how the cornerstones of Technology, Market, and Implementation must work together iteratively to realize ideas in the marketplace. As a university professor who has founded five companies to date, I especially commend this book to US government and university IP policy makers.

Gary P Pisano –
Inside Real Innovation offers a compelling and worrisome look at the US innovation system. The authors argue that the US has been living off fundamental innovations done decades ago. This book must be read by scholars and policymakers with a concern for US economic performance.
