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.
"DEFINITELY A RIGHT GOOD READ!"
This book may have some flaws, but it is a useful read to get us left brainers out of our complacent and confident ruts...it introduces us to the rest of the world which is well worth exploring. They say we never stop learning, well this book helps give us a bit of a nudge. I for am one am grateful!
"interesting for coders."
I'm a Western coder. I've slowly been progressing in my career but this book makes sense why I should leave the coding to someone else and focus more on the big picture. I'd say I have been doing this already but the challenge is getting someone to do it at the same quality and as quick. I'll definitely be working on right brain activities. I've done some of this in the past and I have seen an improvement of my first draft projects.
