Vook Rebiew VI

  • Whole New Mind: this non-fiction book is very "Big Picture", very "Here and Now": very helpful and apropos. Granted, the economy is a distraction, but the economy is a Left-Brain drain. We were brought into "abundance" (Daniel Pink's word) by Left Brain tactics, but - let's face it - that couldn't last, as we are all now aware! It was the Left Brain that can't hold us in the position of "abundance" any longer. We didn't get to the Right Brain soon enough. Dan Pink is the herald of our times, with his research into Right Brain tactics and Right Brain phenomena, to my way of thinking.
  • Mr. Pink, in this book, is quick to point out, that "Left" is not bad per se, and "Right" is not good per se, but that it's the balance between them that's required. He says we rapidly lost track of our Right-Brain directions as Left Brain got the bit in its teeth and plunged us into its own Left brain prosperity. It was prosperity, but we were out of balance.
  • The mistake is to go on thinking that Left Brain tactics alone will will continue to serve us, that Left Brain tactics alone will restore the balance to our economic state. And Dan Pink's book, WNM, is very current and will help us restore our balance.
