Five top books on innovation

One title on the Barnes & Noble Review's list of five top books on innovation:
The Idea Factory
by Jon Gertner

Before Silicon Valley became the cradle of American technological innovation, AT&T's Bell Labs in sylvan New Jersey produced the revolutionary inventions that changed the world, including radar, lasers, transistors, and more. Gertner's narrative showcases the personalities behind this sustained burst of creativity and captures the manic energy that powered a place that sometimes had PhDs riding unicycles in the halls.
