Overview

Most intriguing of all, do the best ideas really strike in a flash of 'sudden genius', or is there some build-up to them? Andrew Robinson explores these questions by looking closely at creative periods in the lives of ten very different individuals from the arts and sciences. Breakthroughs, he observes, involve talent, intelligence, and luck, but above all, years of total absorption and commitment.
