Uses the two sides of the human brain as a metaphor for understanding how the information age came about throughout the course of the past generation, counseling readers on how to survive and find a place in a society that is marked by rising affluence, job outsourcing, and computer technology at the expense of inventiveness, empathy, and meaning. 35,000 first printing.
Daniel H. Pink, former speechwriter for Al Gore and bestselling author of FREE AGENT NATION, returns with a thought-provoking book arguing that we are entering a new age, the "conceptual age," where right-brain thinking will dominate the cultural and business world. He compares this paradigm-shift as similar to the one between the "industrial age" and the "information age," a time when new skill sets became necessary, and new models for economic success appeared. In particular, Pink proposes six "senses" that people must develop to thrive in the conceptual age: design, story, sympathy, empathy, play, and meaning.
