Joshua Wolf Shenk, author of Powers of Two: Finding the Essence of Innovation in Creative Pairs, considers the end of the sole genius myth in a New York Times op-ed. (Hemingway, of course, would disagree – in his short and spectacular 1954 Nobel Prize acceptance speech, he spoke to the creative value of working alone.)
A side observation: The op-ed seems to be the new-old book trailer. Shenk recently wrote a similar piece for The Atlantic.
