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.

There are very books I like to read more than once, this book is one them. I think I will read this book 2 more times. Very interesting, amplicable, and thought provoking information. Thank you Daniel for this helpful, and fun book.
I'm a lawyer and mediator. I represent businesses in disputes with their insurers and in other complex litigation. I also assist machinery companies and manufacturers (primarily international) with equipment sales, non-disclosure agreements, and business issues. I also mediate commercial disputes.
Dan is a little Pink in his outlook. If you can get past the left wing politics and the overhype in certain parts, there is a lot of pretty interesting information here. I think a lot of it is probably right (right brained, I guess!), but at the fringes, it gets a little weird. And this is from a thoroughly right brain oriented lefty (handedness, not politics).
Left brain minded professions have ruled for too long. It is high time that the right brain minded professionals are given the keys to the city. I absolutely enjoyed this book since it is presented it an easy to understand and a very clear manner. The book is about a new wave of thinking - artists are given more importance than engineers, and creativity replaces computerization.
Was completely not what I expected. The glorified pulp self-help book belongs on the rack in a grocery store check-out aisle right beside the Secret and other non-sense peddled by Oprah.
Once in a while a book comes along, which sweeps away established and conventional wisdom and opens up our minds to a completely new perspective on an existing idea. Daniel Pink's A Whole New Mind can rightfully claim its place in the pantheon of such ground-breaking titles.
It is a must-read for all who want to identify their true potential and maybe even their true calling.
It opens our eyes to the stunning fact that the tools to succeed in the flat world are right there with us ... all we have to do is start to use them as they're meant to be used.
The presentation is simple but the impact is great; in fact the thing I liked most about the book is its ability to convey a very powerful idea in a very simplistic manner.
A Whole New Mind is, in the truest sense of the word, enlightening. I'm convinced that assimilating the book's ideas would definitely help people lead a much more fulfilling and meaningful life.
