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.

    "Loved!"

    As a designer this book made me so happy!!! I always used to feel you weren't smart if you didn't do hard sciences, so this book made me feel good about my choice in creative careers.

    Story
    "An Introduction to a More Balanced Brain Future"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. The book offers a concept for which way the world is heading, and provides some basic ideas on how to cope with this new reality.


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

    Throughout the book, the author keeps coming back to our roots as humans. We have evolved and grown into beings very capable and understanding of each other and ourselves. While much of the modern world is obsessed with technology and applications of new devices, the author argues that technology will free us to better focus on ourselves as humans.


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

    Listening to the author, it is clear that these are simple ideas and this is a basic overview. If you're looking for something in depth on the subject, the author provides worthwhile sources which provide more depth on these topics.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No - there's too much in this book to fit into a single sitting. As he introduces these concepts, the author introduces sources for further reading which are worth consulting before moving on to subsequent chapters.


    Any additional comments?

    As I listened to this material, I was consistently inspired to dive deeper and relate my own experiences. I'm definitely going to follow up and take advantage of diving deeper into the underlying topics.

    "Disappointed"

    I was disappointed. Too simplistic, not scientific at all. I didn't feel like I learned anything new.

    "A great book for everyone, especially artists and analysts"

    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!
