Because of the global coronavirus crisis, I have agreed with my publisher’s request to delay publication of the UK edition of my new book How Innovation Works from 14 May till 25 June.
The US edition will be published on 19 May as planned, because printing has already begun.
The book already includes a chapter on public health and the role of innovation in the battle against epidemics of smallpox, polio, typhoid, whooping cough, malaria and cholera. But I will now add a short section for the end of the book about this year’s pandemic and its implications for our attitude towards innovation. (Spoiler: we need more, not less.)
Thank you, and please stay safe.
