A New York Times-bestselling breakthrough book about talent, passion, and achievement from the one of the world's leading thinkers on creativity and self-fulfillment. You, Your Child, and School is forthcoming from Viking.

The Element is the point at which natural talent meets personal passion. When people arrive at the Element, they feel most themselves and most inspired and achieve at their highest levels. With a wry sense of humor, Ken Robinson looks at the conditions that enable us to find ourselves in the Element and those that stifle that possibility. Drawing on the stories of a wide range of people, including Paul McCartney, Matt Groening, Richard Branson, Arianna Huffington, and Bart Conner, he shows that age and occupation are no barrier and that this is the essential strategy for transform-ing education, business, and communities in the twenty-first century.

Also available from Ken Robinson is Finding Your Element, the practical guide to achieving your highest potential.

Review:

"The Element offers life-altering insights about the discovery of your true best self." --Stephen R. Covey, author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

"Ken Robinson presents the theme of creativity and innovation in a way that makes you want to go out and make your dreams a reality. In his wonderfully easy-to-read and entertaining style he presents the stories of many who have done just that. . . . It is a book that lightens and lifts the minds and hearts of all who read it." --Susan Jeffers, Ph.D., bestselling author of Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway(R) and Life is Huge!

"A great and inspiring book. It's been said that an unexamined life is not worth living. True enough and Ken Robinson doesn't let us off the hook. After the first page, you have to abandon your ego and look for your own gifts and graces." --Warren Bennis, author of On Becoming a Leader: The Leadership Classic

"Robinson (Out of Our Minds), renowned in the areas of creativity development, innovation, and human resources, tackles the challenge of determining and pursuing work that is aligned with individual talents and passions to achieve well-being and success. . . . Motivating and persuasive, this entertaining and inspiring book will appeal to a wide audience." --Publishers Weekly

"Ken Robinson is a remarkable man, one of the few who really look at and into you, so he makes you feel at ease and happy. I'm proud to be in his book as one of the people he feels attained the Element. Reading his book helps you pinpoint the search we must all make to achieve the best in us." --Gillian Lynne, choreographer, Cats and The Phantom of the Opera

"While the world is changing faster than ever, our organizations, our schools, and too often our minds are locked in the habits of the past. The result is a massive waste of human talent. The Element is a passionate and persuasive appeal to think differently about ourselves and how to face the future." --Alvin Toffler, author of The Future Shock

"A brilliant and compelling look at creativity, and the path to succeed in the global world of tomorrow." --Harry Lodge, co-author of Younger Next Year

From the Back Cover:

Praise for OUT OF OUR MINDS: Learning to be Creative
'I shall add Ken Robinson's absorbing account of creativity to my personal list of gems. I was sorry to reach the end of the text, as it had maintained its momentum throughout. The reading may finish, but the thinking goes on, just as you would expect from a book on this intriguing subject'
The Times Educational Supplement

'A truly mind-opening analysis of why we don't get the best of people in a time of punishing change'
The Director

'This well-written book focuses on the widening gulf between academic institution teachingsand the feelings, emotions and imagination that drive us as humans'
Arts Professional

'I recommend that you read the book, take part in the debate and become part of the new paradigm'

'This book will stimulate and challenge'
