Steven Johnson’s been on the show now three times. The first time, the book was The Ghost Map: The Story of London’s Most Terrifying Epidemic — and How it Changed Science, Cities and the Modern World; the second, The Invention of Air: A Story of Science, Faith, Revolution, and the Birth of America. In his latest, Where Good Ideas Come From: The Natural History of Innovation, he examines how to formulate a creative environment.
