IN THIS SUMMARY

The Idea Hunter, by Andy Boynton, Bill Fischer, and William Bole, argues that most new ideas are not entirely original, and that a person does not need to be a genius to be an innovator. In fact, the authors say that it is not the geniuses who come up with the best inventions, but rather, those who are in the habit of looking for new ideas and ways of doing things. Ideas matter at work, and they are more valuable than products since they are instrumental in creating progress. Those who wish to be Idea Hunters—the inventors of tomorrow’s breakthroughs—must ground themselves in four bedrock principles that create the crucial habits of mind necessary for finding ideas. These I-D-E-A principles are identified by four adjectives: interested, diverse, exercised, and agile.
