    One thought on “A Whole New Mind: Moving from the information age to the conceptual age”

    1. I hate this book and want to set it on fire. No, seriously. Daniel Pink takes a bunch of self-evident ideas, hammers them togethers with some feel-good rationale, and writes a pampered, whiny how-to of middle class comfort telling us to use our right brains to stay competitive and maintain our middle class relevance.His examples are trite and his sources appalling--looking at the selections at your local suburban Target is not the way of justifying your belief in a culture of abundance, you self [...]

    2. I’m a “right-brainer”. In the language of Myers-Brigg’s typology, I am an extreme INFP, an introverted feeling type (heart vs. head), with strong leanings towards intuition (vs. sensing), and perceiving (vs. judgment). As an “intuitive”, I make all sorts of connections, linking ideas, and often jumping from one thought to another. Trying to keep up with me in conversation, people sometimes say that I am “all over the place.” This typology has not always served me well in my caree [...]

    3. كتاب جميل بحق ، من يقرأه يشعر أنه يعيش العصر يعيش اللحظة . ينقلك الكتاب الى محطات ست بعد أن يذكرأهميتها ومدى صِدق جمالها ، يتحدث عن مهارة التعاطف و المعنى و السيمفونيةو التصميم و القصة بعيدًا كليًا عن مقالات العلوم التطبيقة ،و قريبً جدًا من الروحانية المُفتَقدة في عصرنا هو با [...]

    4. A very popular business book--at least it was seven years ago--claiming that because of abundance, Asia and automation, right-brained abilities are now becoming even more valuable in the workplace than left-brained skills. He presents right-brained abilities in categories, and offers exercises to help develop such skills. Disregarding the fact that neurobiologists now believe these skills have little to do with a particular hemisphere, I agree with the thesis of this book, and thought that the p [...]

    5. Daniel Pink’s A Whole New Mind makes many excellent points. Unfortunately, it suffers from an awkward and unconvincing metaphorical framework.Chapter 1: Right Brain RisingPink starts out explaining about the brain’s left and right hemispheres, and how each side is responsible for different cognitive activities - the left hemisphere tends to be responsible for sequential logic, analysis, and language; the right hemisphere for holistic reasoning, pattern recognition, emotions and body language [...]

    6. After enjoying Drive this book was surprisingly disappointing. The basic line is that if you are doing something that can be done by computers or more cheaply by Asian workers then your job probably doesn’t have a future. You are probably doing something much too ‘left-brained’ and you need to start doing something more ‘right-brained’. This guy really does like to categorise ideas – he has six main categories in this one that you need to be good at if you are going to make it in the [...]

    7. خاض معي هذا الكتاب رحلتان وبقية واحدة أما الرحلة الأولى فهي تجربة "قراءة ربع ساعة في اليوم" حيث قرأت الكتاب في ١٩ يومًا بمقدار ربع ساعة يوميًّا وياللعجب! وجدت هذه الطريقة أقرب للفائدة وتثبيت الفكرة. أما الرحلة الثانية فهي رحلتي الخاصة في فهم ذاتي التي رسم نواتها لي الدكتور ع [...]

    8. Well written and easy to read, with little to disagree with, but nevertheless a book I find difficult to rate at more than 2 stars.I enjoyed the first 60 or so pages which introduce Pink's argument that we need to make better use of our right-brain characteristics and move away from our over-reliance on left-brain thinking. Fortunately, Pink has done some research and is not presenting a typical simplistic view of right and left brains. He acknowledges we need to use both, just a bit of re-balan [...]

    9. This book was better than what reviewers and critics were saying about it.Daniel makes it completely clear that to survive in the conceptual age, we need to harness the power of our right brained cognitive abilities. In concordance, left brained cognitive abilities have simply grown obsolete, completely vulnerable to the affects/threats of the conceptual age, because their working function can now be either be automated, shipped off to foreign grounds (due to globalization), or be terminated bec [...]

    10. Pink's proposal is a touch idealistic, but the vision he paints is promising. Basically, since automation and outsourcing to Asia can now accomplish lots of left-brain heavy jobs (computer coding, etc.) and since affordability of so many products has freed up some of our time and energy, Pink suggests that future jobs (and happiness) will depend more on those who master six critical senses managed by the right side (the creative side) of the brain: design, play, story, symphony, empathy, and mea [...]

    11. Besides having an author name seemingly borrowed from “Reservoir Dogs,” there is much to like in this popular business/pop psychology book. It posits a movement from an era when “Left-Brained” Knowledge Work was at a premium to one in which “Right-Brained High-Concept and High Touch” Work will be the demand opportunity. Computers and a global workforce have reduced the at home demand for knowledge work—computers do it massively faster and smart, English-speaking workers in West Asi [...]

    12. كل ما احلف بالله إني مش هقرا تنمية بشرية ألاقي صديق أو صديقة يرشحولي كتاب ويلحوا إني أقراهربنا يخليهم طبعًا هما عاوزني أغير رأيي لكن دة المرة الخمسين وفي كل مرة رأيي يتأكدالكتاب ليس إلا هراء منكرش إنه ملهم في بعض الأحيان لكن إلهام مؤقتالشخص لو من نفسه معندوش الحافز لتغيير نف [...]

    13. كتاب يأخذ بيدك من عالم الآلة إلى ما وراءها، وليس إلى ما قبلها من معنى، يعرف أن من سيستمر هو ذلك الذي يدمج بين اللعب والعمل ولا يقتصر على واحد منهم، ويهتم بالروح والمادة ولا يضخم أحدهما فقط، أحببته وأثار عندي سؤال ماذا لو كنت أعيش في دولة غير ريعية ماهي المهارات التي يمكنني أن [...]

    14. داستان اول[جان هنری، یکی از قهرمان های ملی آمریکا است که گویا داستانش در کتب دبستان ایالت متحده نیز هست. کسی شبیه به دهقان فداکار، داستان ازین قرار است که، زمانی که برای اولین بار ماشین های معدن به کار گرفته می شوند معدنچی ها اعتراض میکنند این معدن چی تصمیم میگیرد با یک ماشین م [...]

    15. Pink has a fundamentally decent, and possibly true, point--that in order to succeed, today's workers need to be more creative than ever before, because all of the logic-driven drone-work will be done by, well, drones--but his point gets buried in this pop-psych, new-agey rhetoric. His advice on what sorts of traits will be necessary seem obvious to me--they boil down to play nice with others, make connections between people and ideas, and have fun--but he did lose me at the end where he advocate [...]

    16. i first this book with interest, but then had to skim through the last 50 pages or so to finish it. Sorry Mr. Pink. The stories were fun to read, the numbers and data were interesting but couldn't buy your prophecy and share u your "pinkish" view of the future.I believe our world is already run by a few R-Directed minds crazy ones indeed. One more thing, maybe i'm just paranoid here, but in a way i felt that this book is directed to the westerners, while the low-waged asians are somehow objectif [...]

    17. Pink's central argument in this book is related to the future of jobs and how they will be mostly carried out by computers or cheap labor from Asia, which is, I think, an almost realistic portrait of the future. Unfortunately, it does not seem to be easy to switch using right-brain after being advised to use your left-brain to succeed in the harsh economic world out there. When I was reading this book, I realized though it is sometimes hard, it is easy to do things that require logic and certain [...]

    18. If you are already the type to work through your ideas by sketching, dreaming, and creating, this book isn't likely to tell you anything you don't already know. You may, however, come away feeling a little smug towards the persistent chorus of voices that cast doubts on the aspirations of those drawn towards the arts and liberal arts studies.That is, until you realize that Pink's assertion that "right-brainers will rule the future" isn't really substantiated in this book. Pink begins the book wi [...]

    19. Although it goes against my principles to give 5 stars to a self-help book, I make an exception for this gem. It's fascinating and revealing, and full of hope for the future (there's a rare commodity). My book club really loved it--all of us.Pink (yes, that's his name) outlines his vision for the next generation of world business trends in our "flat" world where automation, asia, and abundance have created new requirements for success--requirements that for the most part come out of the right br [...]

    20. I was disappointed with this book. I must confess I did not finish it. I'm writing a review for the first 60%. I did learn some things. It has been a while since my psychology classes and I enjoyed the brain review. However, it degrades into a cheerleading book without much support. I lost interest at the point where he talks about the CEO who hires poets instead of MBA holders. I need a bit more support to the argument than I asked some rich guy. Are there any studies comparing the success rate [...]

    21. While I'm sympathetic to the opinion that folks with creativity provide valuable services and will continue to be in demand, anybody with half a left brain can see that most of the arguments advanced herein are faulty or poorly supported. Most of the evidence offered is anecdotal. When the author does us the (occasional) service of providing a reference, it is usually a weak source, a secondary source, or a source completely unrelated to the fact/quote stated. There may be a decent idea in here, [...]

    22. Really loved this book. I found so many actionable items to push my own thinking further, in new directions. I even plan to develop a scrapbooking class around the information I learned.

    23. Before I listened to this book, I took some online quizzes to find out if I was more right brained or left brained. Three quizzes said I was left brained, one said I was right brained. So when I say I didn't like this book, you can chalk it up to my left-brained narrow-mindedness.Pink starts out his book with one solid premise: left-brained tech centered jobs are being outsourced overseas and taken over by computers. If you want to succeed, you need to learn how to be more in touch with the righ [...]

    24. A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future, by Daniel H. Pink is a text which examines why right brainers or people with more creative and artistic abilities are going to rule the future. His argument is that due to Abundace, Asia and Automation, Left-Brained people or people with technical abilities are going to loose their edge in the job market. The only solution for them to remain relevant is to pick up skills which are more artistic and creative to enhance their skill set and [...]

    25. Lại một cuốn sách hay của D.Pink.Cuốn sách này nói về tầm nhìn cho thời đại mới - thời đại của ý niệm.

    26. For the first time in my life, I felt like someone was actually saying not only do I have skills, but they are important. For all of my life the very idea of performing process-driven work has caused me mental hives. I was made to feel somehow deficient if I couldn't stay attuned to the task. In fact, one teacher, who I will call Mr. Bologna MaHohney, told me I would end up on the street if I didn't learn to color inside the lines. (Ok, he didn't exactly say on the street, but that's what he mea [...]

    27. I'm glad that I didn't let the mixed reviews sway me into not reading this book. It is actually a pretty interesting read. The author's key message is that the Right-brain traits and capabilities will be ever more important to succeed in this age of information, what he calls the Conceptual Age. He is not diminishing the importance of L brain traits which have landed us where we are today, but they need to be supplemented.The book is divided into two parts. The first part starts out with a diffe [...]

    28. Buku ini bercerita tentang adanya pergeseran dari pemikiran otak kiri (Directed Left Thinking) yang teoritis dan analitis ke arah pemikiran otak kanan (Directed Right Thinking). Pergeseran tersebut didorong oleh adanya masa kelimpahmewahan, otomatisasi dan serbuan negara dengan tenaga kerja murah. Ketika selera orang semakin meningkat sedangkan komputerisasi dan tenaga kerja murah dari asia membanjir, membuat warga negara maju harus berpikir tentang eksistensi mereka di dunia tenaga kerja. Menur [...]
