  • A Whole New Mind by Daniel Pink

In this book, Daniel offers a fresh look at what it takes to excel, revealing the six essential aptitudes on which professional success and personal fulfilment now depend, and includes a series of hands-on exercises culled from experts around the world to help readers sharpen the necessary abilities.

If it’s likely that someone in China or India can do your work more cheaply than you can, or if a computer can do your work faster than you can, READ THIS BOOK. Lawyers. Doctors. Accountants. Engineers. That s what our parents 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 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 readers to a daring new place, and offers a provocative and urgent new way of thinking about a future that has already arrived.
