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)
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!
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.
