A Whole New Mind—Daniel Pink

Think about the work that you do.  Can someone overseas do it cheaper?  Can a computer do it faster?  Are you offering something that satisfies the nonmaterial desires of an age of abundance?  Dealing with your answers to these three driving questions is the premise of A Whole New Mind by Daniel Pink.  Pink discusses changes that globalization and fiber-optic telecommunications are bringing about in our society. His book highlights the kind of people, or more correctly, the kind of thinking and thought processes that will be most highly valued and sought after in 21st century society.  At times the book felt a bit like I needed to sit in a circle and sing Kumbaya with my co-workers, but the ideas he puts forth certainly make this a worthwhile read.
