  • A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future

    Lawyers. Accountants. Software Engineers. That what Mom and Dad encouraged us to become. They were wrong. Gone is the age of "left-brain" dominance. The future belongs to a different kind of person with a different kind of mind: designers, inventors, teachers, storytellers - creative and emphatic "right-brain" thinkers whose abilities mark the fault line between who gets ahead and who doesn't.

    Overall

    amazing book; listened to it multiple times and have used ideas while teaching in the college classroom; if only D. Pink could come up with a formula to make more people into change agents, but I am trying, one class of students at a time.

  • Mindfulness

    Story
    (37)

    Ellen J. Langer, Harvard professor of psychology, determines that the mindless following of routine and other automatic behaviors lead to much error, pain, and a predetermined course of life. In this thought provoking audio book, her research has been "translated" for the lay listener. With anecdotes and metaphors, Langer explains how the mindless (as opposed to the mindful) develop mindsets of categories, associations, habits of thought born of repetition in childhood and throughout schooling.

    morton says: "Become mindful and set your own course!"
    "Reading for knowledge"
    Overall

    Very insightful reading. Research studies provide relevant content that makes the text come alive. I challenge anyone to take a look at their own lives and recognize all the mindless behavior in which we engage.
