Reich, a strategist and writer for executive leaders at various organizations, argues that people aren't using their imagination enough and explains the role it plays in personal and professional life. He draws on interviews with scientists, entrepreneurs, organizational leaders, subject matter experts and practitioners, actors, filmmakers, comedians, inventors, and others, as well as media coverage, research, and his personal experiences, to describe how to close the imagination gap and create changes in behavior to expand the use of imagination. He explains the history and science behind imagination and how it works; the imagination gap and how to apply imagination; how lack of knowledge and the absence of leadership affects imagination; strategies for closing the gap; new ways of taking about issues and challenges to spark new uses of imagination; how using and applying imagination impacts decision making, beliefs and behaviors, individual and collective potential, and structures and rules; how a war room style approach encourages the use and application of imagination; the value of data using imagination as a driver for how to be smarter about the connected society; failure and imagination; and big ideas and questions related to imagination.
