A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future | [Daniel H. Pink]

A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future

Lawyers. Accountants. Software Engineers. That 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.

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.

    Story
    "Informative, thought provoking, steps to start."
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Whole New Mind to be better than the print version?

    Audible works for me. I listen while working in my garden.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Whole New Mind?

    Why learned base knowledge tasks, and one answer tasks are being outsourced or done by the computer.


    What does Daniel H. Pink bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Great story teller.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    All of his suggestions of things to do to access more of your right brain.

    Story
    "Nice listen, could have delved deeper"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Overall yes, some great points and interpretation. Was actually recommended by a friend, so I guess that makes it a two way street.


    Would you recommend A Whole New Mind to your friends? Why or why not?

    See above? Is this a trick question?


    Which character – as performed by Daniel H. Pink – was your favorite?

    The Indian doctor who started the laughing club. That part had me laughing for no good reason.


    What did you take away from A Whole New Mind that you can apply to your work?

    The power of incorporating creative thinking, and asking yourself 'can my job be automated or shipped offshore?' If so what can I offer that can't be found offshore?

    I am a dancer, health professional, meditator and avid reader. I listen to audio books while driving, working out and doing chores. I listen to non-fiction more than fiction, but enjoy both. I like books I can learn from or be inspired by. I post my favorites on Pintrest.

    Story
    "Protect you employability by using your right side"
    Would you listen to A Whole New Mind again? Why?

    I actually listened to it twice. The second time I kept a notebook handy to right down suggestion of other books to do and things to try. I also bookmarked it on my phone audible app.


    If you’ve listened to books by Daniel H. Pink before, how does this one compare?

    I have not listened to anything else by this author.


    Which character – as performed by Daniel H. Pink – was your favorite?

    This is a non-fiction book, but he talks about the Hero's story, like Homer, and how the story is what we are wired for. He has grat book suggestions if you want more on the story.


    Any additional comments?

    Develop the right side of the brain and use this book as a jump off.

    Story
    "A Little Preachy"

    Some good info, but sometimes the central became a little preachy. Also, some of the information was pretty surface level and slightly--not fully--inaccurate. I found myself looking forward to the end, so I could move on to a new book.

    I am not saying this is a bad book ... it's just not what i have expected ... though filled with useful info i thought it was completely centered on money and business regardless of one's talents and dreams...

    "Traditional book better than audio"
    If you could sum up A Whole New Mind in three words, what would they be?

    This book was a little difficult to get the full benefit of from the audio. Many good points, but more easily followed in other format.
