A cool summary of Daniel Pink's groundbreaking book -- with an emphasis on the business perspective. While the "six senses" that Pink describes may not resonate immediately for your organization, there are powerful lessons for managers and executives focused on the future. And at least some of Pink's "three As" (Asia, automation and abundance) will ring true for nearly every organization. One of my very favorite non-business, business books!
