Along the way, he reveals how pairs begin to talk, think, and even look like each other; how the most successful ones thrive on conflict; and why some pairs flame out while others endure. When it comes to shaping the culture, Shenk argues, two is the magic number, not just because of the dyads behind everything from South Park to the American Civil Rights movement to Starry Night, but because of the nature of creative thinking. Even when we're alone, we are in a sense "collaborating" with a voice inside our head. At once intuitive and surprising, Powers of Two will change the way we think about innovation.

Love the book, hated the language.
I love the principles taught in this book. I think it can be life-changing for anyone who reads it.
Unfortunately, there are a whole group of people I can't share this book with. Joshua Wolf Shank has chosen to limit his audience by including language that could easily be retracted. It's a shame.
If you don't mind the F-word being used frequently (in quotations), I highly recommend this book.

Throughout the whole book there was an undertone of internal conflict from the writer. With alot of stories of well known pairs being told, there lacked an immersiveness into the characters world. I believe that the flat narration played a great part in not doing the book justice. Was a tough listen for me.
