RENO, Nev. - Jan. 29, 2018 - PRLog -- Responding to interest from surgeons and the non-medical world alike, Dr. Michael Ries created, "The Joint Kitchen," a book about how to develop ideas for improvements in hip and knee replacement devices.  His story came into being when he was inspired to create drawings from everyday items found in his kitchen, and turn them into patents for new hip and knee replacements. The story suggests that some of the best ideas spring from a place of quiet, when the mind is still and receptive.

One of the many strengths of "The Joint Kitchen" is that it appeals to vastly different audiences,as noted by Dr. Ries directly, "Since it specifically describes medical devices, I think that health care professionals in the orthopaedic field would have a lot in common with the story.  "The Joint Kitchen" also shows how the normal hip and knee work, and the differences between the normal joints and replaced joints. That is something that anyone considering a joint replacement, and maybe their friends and family usually want to know about.  There is also a description of how our mind thinks by connecting images, which I believe is similar to what scientists and scholars who study the brain have found.  I hope that those smart people can also find "The Joint Kitchen" useful to further understand how we create ideas."

Indeed, the responses from the medical field and lay people alike hold "The Joint Kitchen"in high regard, calling it, "A necessary read for anyone who is considering knee or hip replacement, or anyone who wishes to become an inventor in the prosthetic field, in fact, anyone who hopes to become the next Leonardo da Vinci!"—Michael E. Davies, Renowned Emergency Room and Trauma physician

"An extraordinarily helpful book about creative thinking, describing exactly what happens with me every day when I am writing." – Alan Trustman, Author of Bullitt, The Thomas Crown Affair, Recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Cannes Film Festival

"By demonstrating ways to accomplish "creative thinking through common tasks," the author is sure to influence other pioneers. I would recommend this book to any natural "da Vinci" type who yearns to see his or her ideas come to fruition." –Kimberly Luyckx, Reader Views
