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.

"Thought-provoking moments abound." (Publishers Weekly)
"This book is a miracle. Completely original and profound." (Tom Peters)
"For soon-to-be liberal arts graduates, it makes an encouraging graduation gift." (Newsweek)
"This is one author who knows how to narrate. Pink has excellent pacing, diction, and tone." (AudioFile)
I learned a lot from this book...have talked about it a bunch. Narrator/author was entertaining too.
This was a great listen which pushed forward a lot of inward thinking. It provides some great insight to the future of the workplace.

loved every chapter, one of Dan Pink's best. recommended read for the modern era. better as audio book
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.
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.
The book is full of useful information, data, research and practical tips about developing our right brains. As a coach & consultant, I got tons of content and value that I can share and apply in my work with clients.
I thought the concepts might be dated for s book that was written 10 years ago, but clearly Pink was well ahead of his time on writing it. The argument he presents for more right brained, balanced thinking is inspiring. This book is charged with plenty of powerful narrative and meaningful research. As always the author provides plenty of resources and tools. Well done! I highly recommend it for those who are ready.
Not sure I know much about myself to tell you!
I loved the overall book. New ways of thinking and lots of great tools. Would have loved more if story telling would have been better.
A very well narrated book by the author! I loved his specific mention in several places that this was an audiobook and thus optimized as such.
I feel the best audio experience is gained when the author is a good narrator since there then remains no concern about what the author meant or intended.
