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)

I had the good fortune to see Scott Belsky speak at a conference. Within an hour I had bought this book. Before the end of my business trip, I was devouring it. Within the week I was applying it.
If you have ever procrastinated on a creative or even not so creative project (e.g. writing a strategy document) and you enjoy books that provide a combination of the underlying science, interesting anecdotes and actionable next steps, this book will not disappoint.
