A Whole New Mind by Daniel H. Pink

The brain consists of two halves the left and the right. The “left brain” is responsible for linear logical thinking while the “right-brain” is responsible for big-picture creative thinking. We all use both sides but we tend to use one side more dominantly. In the past “left brain” dominant professions such as Lawyers, Accountants & software engineers were in high demand. Daniel Pink presents the idea that the future will belong to the people who are “right-brain” dominant, designers, teachers, storytellers, creative & empathetic thinkers. Technology and outsourcing are rapidly replacing many jobs as they can be done quicker & cheaper. “Right brain” skills such as empathy and big picture visioning are harder to replace and will be crucial to providing value in our new world.  Dive into this book and learn how you can increase your “right-brain” powers.
