Tonny Karrer's review of Pink's A Whole New Mind looks at the idea of the 'concept worker', a 21st century heir to the 'information worker'. I'm a bit sceptical about that, and even more so about the basis of the book in "right-brain thinking". From the reviews: "Neuroscientific research over the last decade gives us much room for hope - rather than being locked into our current thinking habits, even as adults our brains can be re-trained to think a different way. Pink concludes the book by offering practical ideas for anyone to develop six critical right-brain capabilities: design, story, symphony, empathy, play and meaning."
