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.

should have listened to Joseph

I agree with Joseph "a hole in my mind". I just couldn't get into this and was glad when it was over. There was nothing particularly interesting or fresh. The first half was better than the second. I found myself fast forwarding to get it over with. His voice started to irritate me too. Why do so many of these authors have to read so slowly?!

On the precipice of genius (not quite)...

Clearly Pink is on to something here. However, he doesn't help us put all the pieces together. The book was well written and thought provoking, but it left my right brain searching for the holistic meaning behind his writing. Where does this "theory" fit into the bigger picture of my life?
