Publisher's Summary

Just as we were getting used to the Information Age, Daniel Pink tells us that it is ending. With it goes our focus on charts, statistics, and linear thinking. Traditional "left-brain" activities, like logic, analysis, and repetitive production, are being turned over to robots, computers, and offshore labor. The valued skills of the 21st Century will be those of the right brain: empathy, design, synthesis, and contextual thinking. In this live presentation, author and lecturer Daniel Pink tells you:

  • How abundance, Asia, and automation are changing the world
  • Why "routine" is the scariest word in theEnglish language
  • How old-line companies like GM and Proctor & Gamble are responding
  • What six abilities matter most in the emerging age
  • Think Pink: download this author and lecturer's Free Agent Nation.

    A good reminder of the book

    Read the book about a year ago and decided to listen to this talk instead of listening to the whole book again. It's a great talk and makes the same arguments as in the book in a succint way. Great complement to the book and very funny too, which makes it easier to listen and remember.

    Quick listen peaks curiosity for more

    This speech was full of energy, makes it's points and funny. I laughed and learned about the authors philosophy. I was shocked that it kept my attention (difficult to do). Typically I have to pay close attention and really focus on not tuning out. This speech was easy to pay attention to. I was disappointed when it was over.

    Excellent

    I had heard a lot about 'A whole new mind' by Daniel Pink. I avoided buying this one for a while as it was quite short and obviously not the complete book. I finally gave in and I am so glad I did. It is not only enlightening but it is also very amusing and motivational. I have listened to it several times which is quite unusual for me. I do hope Daniel Pink records the complete 'A whole new mind'

    Interesting presentation

    Lively, thought provoking, and encouraging. I plan to give a copy of this to my grand daughter who is in NYC pursuing a career in performing arts.

    Not what I thought it was

    What would have made A Whole New Mind (Live) better?

    It's a live motivational speech complete with slideshows and graphs you can't see while the speaker is demonstrating his point. You can get the jist of where he's going and I suppose that's good enough.

    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I could feel his excitement and it was easy enough to get caught up until you realize it's all hype.

    Any additional comments?

    I work in the creative industry and just because my skill set is necessary to differentiate one product from another, doesn't mean the corporate system will see the value in it and/or not try to convince the artist that this project is just stepping stone and should be done cheap/free. <br/><br/>It's a nice thought, just not doesn't fit with common business practices.

    Great support for the visual arts

    I'd recommend this to those who need support in arts education. He gives a very thorough understanding of how important the right brain is to pretty much everything.

    Outstanding story, but missing the visuals

    This is an excellent, interesting, engaging presentation of the trends shaping our future markets. Great content is also very well presented and keeps the listener's attention with a great pace, humor, well presented material. Unfortunately, the speaker makes many points where he is clearly displaying visual presentations key to his point. There is no PDF download for this audible so several of his points are missing key visual information (Charts, pictures of his self portraits, etc...). It is still well worth listening too, but would be better (complete) if the listener could see the presentations referred to by the speaker.

    Dated

    Would you try another book from Daniel Pink and/or Daniel Pink?

    No

    What was most disappointing about Daniel Pink’s story?

    Lacks depth. Is not reflecting current scientific workings of left brain/right brain.

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

    He is a good speaker but comes across with confidence that is very close to arrogance. In Q&A he has bad speaking habits. Annoyingly, repeating "okay?" As he drones on without taking a breath.

    Was A Whole New Mind (Live) worth the listening time?

    It was okay while drinking morning coffee, folding laundry... But even then started to seem too long, going nowhere fast.

    Any additional comments?

    My lack of praise may be largely due to the dated material. However, I have no desire to listen to a newer book by this author. And begs the question, why release this lecture so long after the book it was modeled upon?

    Entertaining

    Interesting and funny. He makes some good points about outsourcing and the future of the US workforce.
