I usually love Daniel Pink's work, but this was tired and repetitive. I find he is insightful and typically puts an original twist on common wisdom. He missed the mark on this one. He used the same formula of his past successes but this one felt like a 50-100 page concept stretched out into a 200 pager to keep publishers happy. I would put the concepts in A Whole New Mind on par with the best works of Malcom Gladwell, Steven Levitt and Nassim Nicholas Taleb. This is recycled, repetitive and doesn't come close to his best.
Great subject, great production and narration, great all-around. If you like or are curious about Einstein, you'll love this book. I was amazed that the complex physics concepts were as easy to absorb as they were. I expected the unabridged to drag in spots, but found I was engaged throughout the book. After finishing the book I feel like I really understand the man, his mind and his journey. Well done! Very interesting.
