Scientific American

My book ‘Evil Genius’ has been mentioned in the very first paragraph of an article just published in ‘Scientific American’, entitled ‘What Creativity and Dishonesty may have in common’. Written by Francesca Gino, a behavioural scientist and professor at Harvard Business School, the article describes research into the relationship between dishonesty and creativity, concluding that ‘the notion of the evil genius may be more than a simple image from stories and cartoons’.

I’d like to think that ‘Evil Genius’ is being read in the rarefied corridors of Harvard, but I suspect Ms Gino simply ran across my book on the Internet one day, when she was googling the term ‘evil genius’. Even so, I want to thank her for the mention!

Here is a link to the online article.
