9780143125518: Finding Your Element: How to Discover Your Talents and Passions and Transform Your Life

The New York Times bestselling author of The Element gives readers an inspirational and practical guide to self-improvement, happiness, creativity, and personal transformation. You, Your Child, and School is forthcoming from Viking.

Sir Ken Robinson’s TED talk video and groundbreaking book, The Element, introduced readers to a new concept of self-fulfillment through the convergence of natural talents and personal passions. The Element has inspired readers all over the world and has created for Robinson an intensely devoted following. Now comes the long-awaited companion, the practical guide that helps people find their own Element. Among the questions that this new book answers are:

 



   ·  How do I find out what my talents and passions are?
   ·  What if I love something I’m not good at?
   ·  What if I’m good at something I don’t love?
   ·  What if I can’t make a living from my Element?
   ·  How do I do help my children find their Element?


Finding Your Element comes at a critical time as concerns about the economy, education and the environment continue to grow. The need to connect to our personal talents and passions has never been greater.  As Robinson writes in his introduction, wherever you are, whatever you do, and no matter how old you are, if you’re searching for your Element, this book is for you.

About the Author:

Sir Ken Robinson, Ph.D., is an internationally recognized leader in the development of creativity, innovation and human potential. He is also one of the world’s leading speakers and has had a profound impact on audiences globally. Born in the U.K., he now lives in Los Angeles. 

Lou Aronica is the author and coauthor of several books, including the national bestsellers The Culture Code and The Element. He lives in Connecticut.

From Publishers Weekly:

Creativity expert Ken Robinson has carved out a niche for himself in the self-help genre. In his latest title, a sequel to the bestselling The Element, Robinson puts forth a strategy for self-analysis and introspection designed to bring about personal transformation. A British native now living in the United States, Robinson, with his conversational tone and relaxed cadence, seems to go out of his way to avoid the forceful delivery generally associated with motivational messages. Even the portions of the recording devoted to Robinson's own inspiring story of coping with the challenges of polio at a young age seem low-key, though still engaging. A Viking hardcover. (May)
