"Ned Herrmann and Ann Herrmann-Nehdi know more about the brain than anyone.  If you want to function better, this is a must read."

-- Ken Blanchard
Co-author of The One Minute Manager

"Whether you're new to the Whole Brain model, or ready for a 21st century update to the classic volume, this book is a must-read for anyone with a brain. You will learn how your mind works, how to improve and expand your thinking style, and how to better understand and communicate with the brains around you."

-- Daniel H. Pink
Author of Drive and A Whole New Mind

"This book delivers on two capabilities that leaders at every level should have. First, to truly know that we all actually process the world differently. And second, to start to really think about thinking itself."

-- David Rock
