The first thread focuses on the neuroscience of creativity; the second on building off already existing ideas; the third on developing observational insight; the fourth encourages product and packaging simplicity; and the final is all about finding "the right balance of confidence and flexibility" in turning you ideas into reality.
Red Thread Thinking is an optimistic book that can bring personal success within arms' reach. Kaye is clear that her target audience is the individual. ("Innovation is individual.") However, she closes her book with a call for increased social responsibility through innovation. Good things happen when people innovate for the good of everyone else.
