“A Whole New Mind is an amazing scientific and self-help book that argues that, in order to succeed in modern life, one must become more creative -- or, use not only the logical left brain but also the right brain, a center for emotional thinking and synthesis. Pink very convincingly argues this point and gives many suggestions for ways to increase creativity.”
-- Eric Berg, Book Ends, Winchester, MA


Description
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 empathic ?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 the 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 is a miracle. Completely original and profound.? ? Tom Peters, author of In Search of Excellence A very important, convincingly argued and mind-altering book.? ? Po Bronson, author of What Should I Do With My Life?
