Publisher's Summary

Lawyers. Accountants. Software Engineers. That's 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.

Drawing on research from around the advanced world, Daniel Pink outlines six fundamentally human abilities that are essential for professional success and personal fulfillment - and reveals how to master them.

From a laughter club in Bombay to an inner-city high school devoted to design, to a lesson on how to detect an insincere smile, A Whole New Mind takes listeners to a daring new place, and offers a provocative and urgent new way of thinking about a future that has already arrived.

    "A great book for everyone, especially artists and analysts"

    This book is a must read for anyone trying to make it in the business world and for parents. For artists, it's a great validation that you're not wasting your time, and a call to action to start using your skills in the business world! And for more left brain types, this is a definite wake up call that the world is changing and if you want to stay relevant you've got to start exploring different ways of thinking. Parents of children of all types, keep this in mind when helping your children develop and grow!

    "Great listen, thought provoking."

    This was a great listen which pushed forward a lot of inward thinking. It provides some great insight to the future of the workplace.

    "Great concepts worth listening to"

    Great concepts worth listening to, but padded as the central concept while very thought provoking is a short one.

    Key point for me was realising my own thought process are in fact the opposite to what myself and most people assume of me, and the thing that keeps me in business is not my logical ability but my creativity supported by the logic.

    "Powerful, Practical Book"

    The reader will be able to take some tools and some thoughts away from this book that will make a dramatic impact into their personal and business life. This is one of the best books I've listen to that covers what the next big thing is in the business world. For anyone who wants to stay competitive personally and professionally this is the book.
