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.

This book may have some flaws, but it is a useful read to get us left brainers out of our complacent and confident ruts...it introduces us to the rest of the world which is well worth exploring. They say we never stop learning, well this book helps give us a bit of a nudge. I for am one am grateful!

If you’re at all creative this is not for you

As a creative myself, I’m perhaps not the best reader of a book like this. There are certainly lots of interesting facts in here but ultimately the (very) basic message is: the right brain is creative, the (western) world is getting more creative, so start being creative! Where it falls down however, is it’s failure to address how those who find creativity impossible or uninteresting (yes, they exist) are going to fare in this new creative world. It also throws around the word ‘abundance’ far too often for my liking. Yes, life is more abundant for many of us but there are vast amounts of the population who are still struggling.
