Luciano Passuello creates another book review map.  This is his 6th idea mapping contribution to this blog. In The Medici Effect, author Frans Johansson explores one simple yet profound insight about innovation: in the intersection of different fields, disciplines and cultures, there’s an abundance of extraordinary new ideas to be explored.

Putting together ideas from different areas — ideas that were always seen as completely apart — can easily generate an explosion of new ideas. And since the best way to have great ideas is to have lots of ideas, the best chances for innovation are at those intersections. Go to Luciano’s June 18, 2008 posting for the full downloadable version.
