Thanks to Steven Johnson, you can get a clearer picture of how we've arrived in our 21st century world, as well as learn how you can better understand other innovations in the future. Would you like to pull back the curtain and take a look at the inner workings of innovation? Let's give it up for Steven Johnson!
