A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future
Daniel H. Pink
I listened to the audio book and it worked great in that format because it is well organized and the author keeps the listener updated on the overall structure throughout. Dan Pink was the reader which adds a nice sense of connection and he did a wonderful job.
While he gives a balanced perspective – it is a WHOLE new mind that he recommends, after all – it is still tempting to say that he overplays the argument for right-brain focus in the new millenium. Also, the book was published in early 2006 – I wonder if he would moderate the focus on affluence and offshoring as factors driving the change after the last few years.
That said, I agree with his conclusions, even if I wouldn’t take them quite as far or as fast as he does. Our country and our schools would be well served to develop whole minds.
