Daniel Pink comes to Dallas on Jan 22 — not to be missed.

January 9, 2010

We have been discussing at CGA and within the district the important ideas of Daniel Pink. He is coming to the Dallas Museum of Art on January 22. Don’t miss this opportunity to see this celebrated author and speaker.

Daniel H. Pink is the author of a trio of provocative best-selling books on the changing world of work. His pivotal New York Times bestseller, A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future, charts the rise of right-brain thinking in modern economies and uses the two sides of our brains as a metaphor for understanding the contours of our times.

His book The Adventures of Johnny Bunko: The Last Career Guide You’ll Ever Needis the first American business book in the Japanese comic format known as manga. Illustrated by award-winning artist Rob Ten Pas, it was one of the best-selling graphic novels of 2008 and the only graphic novel ever to become a Business Week bestseller.

In the summer of 2009, Pink was invited to talk at the world-renowned TED conference, an annual conference that invites the world’s most fascinating thinkers and doers to speak.

At the Museum, he will share insights about his latest book, Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us. The book includes thirty years of scientific research about the keys to high performance and satisfaction. Dr. Mehmet Oz says, “Drive is the rare book that will get you to think and inspire you to act. Pink makes a strong, science-based case for rethinking motivation—and then provides the tools you need to transform your life.”

Pink’s articles have appeared in the New York Times, Harvard Business Review, Fast Company, and Wired, where he is a contributing editor.

    His presentation was outstanding – the book is a worthwhile read. Try it with your book club. Thanks for the recommendation, Laura! A wonderful night – lecture and dinner with the grownups – needed that… 😉
