News & Opinion: Whole New Mind: A Primer for the Conceptual Age

By: 800-CEO-READ @ 1:24 PM – Filed under: Innovation & Creativity, Personal Development & Human Behavior

We are witnessing a shift from the logical, linear, computer-like capabilities of the Information Age to an economy and a society built on the inventive, empathic, big picture capabilities of whats rising in its place, the Conceptual Age. I wholeheartedly (and whole mindfully) agree with the premise of A Whole New Mind: Moving From the Information Age to the Conceptual Age by Daniel Pink. And while this isnt the definitive handbook into personally delving into that new age, it is an excellent primer -- with caveats. I had high hopes for A Whole New Mind. I wanted to fall headlong in love with this book but could only muster a strong "let's be friends" attraction. So maybe I'm still pining as I write this.
