By Andy Boynton, Bill Fischer

Jack Welch once said, "Someone, somewhere has a better idea." Inthis myth-busting book, the authors reveal that great businessideas do not spring from innate creativity, or necessarily from thebrilliant minds of people. Rather, great ideas come to those whoare in the habit of looking for great ideas all around them, allthe time. Too often, people fall into the trap of thinking that theonly worthwhile idea is a thoroughly original one. Idea Huntersknow better. They understand that valuable ideas are already outthere, waiting to be found - and not just in the usual places.
