Interview with John Ostopkovish
Last November at ChiTag I had the opportunity to meet the inventor of Jenga, Leslie Scott (pic above). She was the featured Women In Toys speaker and had the entire audience hanging on her every word while she told of her experience with Jenga. It’s a wonderful story and I encourage you all to buy her book which talks about the adventure of taking Jenga from a household game to self production to a mass-market staple. It’s called “About Jenga: The Remarkable Business of Creating a Game that Became a Household Name” and you can find it at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Borders. To give you a little peek into the book, I asked Leslie to do a little interview for my fantastic reader. Enjoy!
‘Written by Leslie Scott, the woman who invented the game, About Jenga is an interesting memoir nestled in the story behind the creation of Jenga. But her book also offers charming and entertaining anecdotal and experiential insights into the world of business making it a worthwhile and inspirational read for aspiring inventors and entrepreneurs.’

Review by Olivera Baumgartner-Jackson
I have to start this review with a confession. I had never heard of Jenga before I started reading Leslie Scott’s “About Jenga,” so I had no real idea what to expect. Even after reading the first few pages, I still did not know exactly what kind of a game Ms. Scott was talking about, yet by that point it simply did not matter any more. I was enthralled by the unfolding story and thoroughly entertained throughout it. (…more)
