Stpaulgirl, September 4, 2011 (view all comments by Stpaulgirl)
Pink makes some interesting points about the value of a well-rounded brain and skill sets that go beyond typical "left-directed" skills and branch out into creativity, empathy, and the purported domain of the right brain. He is less persuasive when he's gazing into his crystal ball and offering advice such as "Get an MFA because corporations love hiring creative people." However, the second half of the book offers interesting summaries of right-brained skills and habits that can help all of us connect with each other and find meaning in a rapidly changing world.

Daniel Pink is a great author. He dissects the right-brainers and left-brainers and then puts them back together to have a more unified life in the 21st century.

This title evokes one to think that the tool we need to tackle our near future is just lying inside us unpolished but willing to be used.

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "Just as information workers surpassed physical laborers in economic importance, Pink claims, the workplace terrain is changing yet again, and power will inevitably shift to people who possess strong right brain qualities. His advocacy of 'R-directed thinking' begins with a bit of neuroscience tourism to a brain lab that will be extremely familiar to those who read Steven Johnson's Mind Wide Open last year, but while Johnson was fascinated by the brain's internal processes, Pink is more concerned with how certain skill sets can be harnessed effectively in the dawning 'Conceptual Age.' The second half of the book details the six 'senses' Pink identifies as crucial to success in the new economy-design, story, symphony, empathy, play and meaning-while 'portfolio' sections offer practical (and sometimes whimsical) advice on how to cultivate these skills within oneself. Thought-provoking moments abound-from the results of an intensive drawing workshop to the claim that 'bad design' created the chaos of the 2000 presidential election-but the basic premise may still strike some as unproven. Furthermore, the warning that people who don't nurture their right brains 'may miss out, or worse, suffer' in the economy of tomorrow comes off as alarmist. But since Pink's last big idea (Free Agent Nation) has become a cornerstone of employee-management relations, expect just as much buzz around his latest theory." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
"Review" by , "A very important, convincingly argued, and mind-altering book."
"Review" by , "For soon-to-be liberal-arts grads, it's an encouraging graduation gift."
"Review" by , "[A] profound read packed with an abundance of references to books, seminars, Web sites, and such to guide your adjustment to expanding your right brain if you plan to survive and prosper in the Western world."
"Synopsis" by , From the author of Free Agent Nation comes an original work that outlines six fundamentally human abilities that are essentials for success and personal fulfillment — and how to master them.
"Synopsis" by , 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.
