Why do so many world-changing insights come from people with little or no related experience? Charles Darwin was a geologist when he proposed the theory of evolution. And it was an astronomer who finally explained what happened to dinosaurs.

Frans Johansson takes us on a fascinating journey to the intersection: a place where ideas and concepts from diverse industries, cultures, departments, and disciplines collide, ultimately igniting an explosion of ideas leading to extraordinary innovations. Breakthrough ideas are most often "intersectional" and occur when we bring concepts from one field into a new, unfamiliar territory. In the book, Frans further offers examples of how we can turn the ideas we discover into path-breaking innovations.
