The Organization Man is history. Taking his place is America's new economic icon: the "free agent" - the job-hopping, tech-savvy, fulfillment-seeking, self-reliant, independent worker. Already 30 million strong, these new "dis-organization" men and women are transforming America in ways both profound and exhilarating.In this landmark book, Daniel H. Pink offers the definitive account of this revolution in work. He shows who these free agents are - from the marketing consultant down the street to the home-based "mompreneur" to the footloose technology contractor - and why they've forged a new path. His entertaining and provocative account of the new frontier of work reveals how free agents are shaking up all of our institutions - from politics to education to the family.Hip and hopeful, meticulously researched and joyously iconoclastic, Free Agent Nation will change your thinking - and maybe even change your life.More

Not what I expected
Critical for parents with children in public ed.
This was so chock full of research and thoughtfully presented ideas about the world of work today and tomorrow, and education. I can't stop thinking about this book, especially as it relates to my young girls' future lives and education in public school.
The end of the book, I think the last few chapters, that touched on public education and 'Alumni Networks' of companies.
Cadence, personality, emphasis where he would have it.
No way. This is a book I stretched out over days, and often reversed in order to really make sure I had a firm grasp of what Daniel was teaching me. I want to listen to it again, and have been telling everyone I know to read this book as well as A Whole New Mind.
I absolutely love Audio Books.
