Five notable books on innovation

One title on the Barnes & Noble Review's list of five top books on innovation:
The Genius Factory
by David Plotz

Want your baby to be smart? Why not use the sperm of a Nobel Prize winner? This was eccentric millionaire Robert Graham's big idea back in 1980: to amass a donor network of recognized geniuses and sell their genetic material to the highest bidder. Plotz doggedly tracks down some of the children and families involved in this completely audacious breeding experiment, dubbed The Repository for Germinal Choice, which closed in 1999.
Read about the other books on the list.
