A Whole New Mind

This is another one of those books that Dan bought from his builder's show book list that I read and gave him the review. It isn't my normal cup of tea, but at the same time, I kept wanting to read more. He talks about how certain fields of industry are suffering because computers can do their work faster, or it can be outsourced to Asia for cheaper. So, he gives a practical guide for making sure that doesn't happen to you, and hints on how to get ahead in your field with his six "abilities." Which are: design, story, symphony, empathy, play, and meaning. At the end of each chapter he has a little "portfolio" of books to read, excersizes to do (like certain museums to attend), and websites to visit to strengthen those areas in your life. I think having a background in psychology made this even more interesting, but it's a book that everyone would get something out of. I hope Timothy and Vernon read it and let me know what they think.
