Rated 5.00/5 based
on 1 reviews
The last few decades have belonged to a certain kind of person with a certain kind of mind—
computer programmers who could crank code, lawyers who could craft contracts, MBAs who
could crunch numbers. But the keys to the kingdom are changing hands. The future belongs to a

This book describes a seismic—though as yet undetected—shift now under way in much of the
advanced world. We are moving from an economy and a society built on 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 what’s rising in its place, the Conceptual Age. A
Whole New Mind is for anyone who wants to survive and thrive in this emerging world—people
uneasy in their careers or dissatisfied with their lives, entrepreneurs and business leaders eager
to stay ahead of the next wave, parents who want to equip their children for the future, and the
legions of emotionally astute and creatively adroit people whose distinctive abilities the
Information Age has often overlooked and undervalued.
In this book, you will learn the six essential aptitudes—what I call “the six senses”—on which
professional success and personal satisfaction increasingly will depend. Design. Story. Symphony.
Empathy. Play. Meaning. These are fundamentally human abilities that everyone can
master—and helping you do that is my goal.
