News & Opinion: New Excerpt: Spark by John Winsor
Earlier today, I posted an interview from the book. It was an interview with Rob Bon Durant, Director of Brand Development for Patagonia. Check it out. It's a great inside look at Patagonia's culture and will make you slightly yearn to pick up your skis or surfboard and head out for the day.
One interesting note about the book is John's dedication page, here's how reads:
To the Garage - Where great ideas are sparked.
(This is my garage and the home of a couple of start-up companies.)
[Just a note: John did place a nice picture of his garage above the dedication; so, use your imagination to picture it.]
