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.
