Businessman, politician, and journalist Matt Ridley narrates this entertaining audiobook with the clarity and flair of a seasoned British voice pro. His vocal enthusiasm is perfectly matched to his lively writing, which is animated by his libertarian perspectives but never weighed down with polemic or partisan fervor. His point of view, deftly expressed with colorful examples from all realms of human history, is that innovation is not one brilliant idea from a lonely genius. It's breakthroughs in technology, commerce, and bioscience that often appear from multiple inventors, appear only after many trials and errors, and need relentless fine-tuning before they achieve widespread utility. He also offers examples of how innovation can be stifled by overregulation, authoritarian governments, and economic policies that discourage competition.
