Description: This is a book that you haveto read.A Whole New Mindis a groundbreaking look at how we should live our lives in a world turned upside down by rising affluence, the outsourcing of good jobs abroad, and the computerization of our livesa world fast shifting from the Information Age to the Conceptual Age.Lawyers. Accountants. Radiologists. Software engineers. That's what our parents encouraged us to be when we grew up. But Mum and Dad were wrong. The future belongs to a very different kind of person - a person with a very different kind of mind. The era of 'left brain' dominance, and the Information Age that it engendered, are giving way to a new world in which 'right brain' qualities - inventiveness, empathy, meaning - predominate. That's the argument at the centre of this provocative and original book, which uses the two sides of our brains as a metaphor for understanding the contours of our times.In the tradition of Emotional Intelligenceand Now, Discover Your Strengths, Daniel Pink offers a fresh look at what it takes to excel in this new world. A Whole New Mindreveals 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. This book will change not only how we see the world but how we experience it as well.'A Whole New Mindis a very important, convincingly argued and mind-altering book.' Po Bronson, author of the New York Timesbestseller What Should I Do With My Life?'This book is a miracle ... With this remarkable book, we just may have discovered our Copernicus for the brave new age that's accelerating into being.' Tom Peters, author of In Search of Excellenceand Re-Imagine!
