Product description

Review

Ideas are easy. Implementation is hard. This book helps you with the hard part. (Guy Kawasaki, Co-founder of Alltop and former chief evangelist of Apple)

I hear people talking all the time about great ideas that never come to life. This book is like a Swiss Army knife for ideas. It offers step-by-step tools to turn ideas into action, and is full of wonderful and enlightening stories of those who have made their ideas happen. (JI LEE, Creative Director at Google Creative Lab and Founder of the Bubble Project)
