Library Journal
"Prolific author Gelb and Caldicott, great-grandniece of Thomas A. Edison and head of her own innovation and marketing consulting firm, here divulge five 'success secrets' inspired by Edison's creative thinking methods, also presenting examples of how these approaches can be applied in any organization or by any listener. Rick Adamson's rich, solid narration finely complements the impressive material. Highly recommended for university libraries supporting business curricula and for larger public libraries."

"Like most works of its type, this is meant to appeal to the mind, not the heart, and Adamson's reading reflects this. He speaks clearly and at a consistent pace. Furthermore, he is expressive enough to keep the listener's attention, yet his tone is always appropriate to the text."
