Peter Burke of the University of Cambridge wrote about ‘Radical Innovators’:

‘Theories of innovation may seem to be a monopoly of economists, but Anton Blok, an anthropologist who has studied history and is interested in psychology, has produced a new and powerful answer to the questions, Who becomes an innovator? And what drives them?’
