I came across the dedication which I do not fully understand:
To my father, who never lets go of a good idea.
I know the idiom let go of something or somebody (which means release…). The man who never let go a good idea – it sounds to me rather like a sort of the offence. The man has no any good idea (he is stupid) and from that reason he never lets go of a good idea. Can you please explain it to me?
He has a good idea and is not discouraged or dissuaded from following that idea to its end. Lots of people have ideas, but eventually give them up because it is too hard or takes too long.
