Summary

The global advancement in information technology has rapidly made it easy for us to access diverse information, diminishing the inequality based on the amount of information one can gain to quite an extent. Nevertheless, despite the equal access to the information, what one can see from such information still greatly varies depending on the person. While most people fail to see anything in what information they had access to, select few people are able to discover a new market, to come up with the ideas for a new service, to anticipate the next move in stock market, and to foresee the trend in the company sales. What is the secret behind such differences? As a matter of fact, the difference lies in the “ability to see," a skill that could be called the "ability to discover." To begin with, it is quite important for us to become aware that “there are things that we fail to see, and that we fail to understand" in order to develop our ability to discover. The readers are likely to find their worldview widely transformed by this book that shares without stint the methods to acquire the "ability to discover."
