|The future belongs to a different kind of person with a different kind of mind: artists, inventors, storytellers-creative and holistic "right-brain" thinkers whose abilities mark the fault line between who gets ahead and who doesn't. Drawing on research from around the world, Pink outlines the six fundamentally human abilities that are absolute essentials for professional success and personal fulfillment-and reveals how to master them. A Whole New Mind takes readers to a daring new place, and a provocative and necessary new way of thinking about a future that's already here.|

(Po Bronson, author of What Should I Do With My Life?) Wow! This is not a self-help book. It's way more important than that.

Excellent concepts brought to light - solutions lacking
The interesting concepts he brings up about the way our economy is shifting to the aesthetics is a good read and I agree with several things he has to say. He does, however, offer them as fresh ideas when much of this has never been abandoned. He really starts bouncing around when he starts talking about solutions (especially in the section on meaning). He recommends books for reading but fails to acknowledge the #1 selling book of all time all over the world "The Purpose Driven Life" leading me to believe he's alittle out of touch with the culture he is writing about. This omission probably has more to do with the fact he does recommend buddhist books! He contradicts himself in several places and seems to be confused in this section. Example contradiction (both stated supporting his section on meaning): Page 231: Pink cites Frankl in his case to show the "ideal life is not a fear-fueled pursuit of cheese. It's more like walking a labyrinth, where the purpose is the journey itself." (in other words, the transcendence is the existence itself). Now go to page 237: He speaks of Mr. Piedmont and his Spiritual Transcendence Scale. Piedmont states "people high in ST believe that there is a larger plan and meaning to life, something beyond our mortal existence..." ...hmmm, can't have it both ways! This double-talk is confusing to the reader, and in my opinion, doesn't offer a solution at all. He introduces Buddhism (page 241) and Marxism (page 219) approaches as solutions. I do recommend the read because it is in the landscape now in businesses and institutions in America - and you should be versed on these concepts. The observations on the move to the aesthetics in our economy is valid and should be embraced in learning institutions and businesses. By all means, think critically as you read...
Excellent item, I had no regrets when bought.
I purchased this book since it was a requirement for my college class. This item is respectably convincing. It presents the idea that imagination and creativity are elements in modern times neccessary to survive in the economy where as in the past, the right side of the brain was more essential in the workforce of previous years, rationale to be exact. I liked everything about this product from its content to its appearance, it was in a better condition than expected. This item is different from others in the sense that it has expanded my mind further.
Recommended this book dozens of times recently.
I borrowed this book from the library; then renewed it. Then I realized I want to mark some reference point in it because it contains so many ideas I want to pursue later. I have recommended this book a dozen times in the past 6 weeks and I bought it for two people already.
