Inhaltsangabe

“This book has everything: new ideas, bold insights, entertaining history, and convincing analysis. Not to be missed by anyone who wants to understand how ideas change the world.” (Daniel Kahneman, winner of the Nobel Prize and author of Thinking, Fast and Slow)

What do James Bond and Lipitor have in common? What can we learn about human nature and world history from a glass of water? 

In Loonshots, physicist and entrepreneur Safi Bahcall reveals a surprising new way of thinking about the mysteries of group behavior that challenges everything we thought we knew about nurturing radical breakthroughs. 

Drawing on the science of phase transitions, Bahcall reveals why teams, companies, or any group with a mission will suddenly change from embracing wild new ideas to rigidly rejecting them, just as flowing water will suddenly change into brittle ice. Mountains of print have been written about culture. Loonshots identifies the small shifts in structure that control this transition, the same way that temperature controls the change from water to ice. 

Using examples that range from the spread of fires in forests to the hunt for terrorists online, and stories of thieves and geniuses and kings, Bahcall reveals how this new kind of science helps us understand the behavior of companies and the fate of empires. Loonshots distills these insights into lessons for creatives, entrepreneurs, and visionaries everywhere. 

Over the past decade, researchers have been applying the tools and techniques of phase transitions to understand how birds flock, fish swim, brains work, people vote, criminals behave, ideas spread, diseases erupt, and ecosystems collapse. If 20th-century science was shaped by the search for fundamental laws, like quantum mechanics and gravity, the 21st will be shaped by this new kind of science. Loonshots is the first to apply these tools to help all of us unlock our potential to create and nurture the crazy ideas that change the world.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

too much business

I strongly fell the pain of the parents (scientists) of the author.
There are a lot of interesting stories and anecdotes in this book but sadly they are centered around a business perspective. The author doesn't get tired to praise enormous profits by big Pharma as well as deregulation and cutting labour costs.
Especially the last one is painful, don't have company's a social and societal responsibly, who needs cheap pies if people get paid so little that they can't afford basic needs? Well I suppose "let them eat pie"...

Wenige gute Ideen

Wenige gute Ideen die meiner Meinung nach in 1/4 der Länge komprimiert werden könnten. Die historischen Referenzen wirken dabei veranschaulichen aber komme eher langweilig daher.

interesting but not innovative

ups and downs. starts week but at the end it went really good. some of the analogies to physics are a bit far- fetched. clear influence some the work s of Clayton Christensen can be seen.
