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.

    "Great book for personal dev professionals"

    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.

    "Awareness for those who are ready"

    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.

    "Gave a completely new perspective"

    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 whole new mind-blowing strategy"

    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.

    "Words for direction"

    Dan Pjnk has written something that helps clarify a shift that has been happening. While this piece is not a story it tells us how to engage in a story and he provides us with specific direction on how to do that. This book/audiobook is art that guides us to an adventure to enjoy life and how to lead others on that path. Ironically after listening to the book I want to buy a hard copy for my library for the tools and to show others. Well done Dan. Now send me a free hard copy.

    "I would recommend this book with a warning"

    I thought the content was good and gave you a lot to think about and he gives you strategies on how to improve certain right brain skills. I also liked the over view between the two sides of the mind.

    Warning very lecture like but still good also he put in a lot of examples... A lot. Also he goes into detail with his strategies. He could just be thorough but for me it was a little much but again I would recommend it

    "Meh"

    Nothing earth shattering and a little rambling. Some informative tidbits, and lots of external resources, but no cohesive plan.

    Fine for general info I you are new to the topic, but people familiar with topic will likely be underwhelmed.

    "Smart. Informative. A bit repetitive."

    An excellent read for anyone who is looking for a way to codify the societal shifts we see every day. Lots of helpful and interesting ideas to work smarter, live happier and think differently.
