Reading Sir Ken is an enlightening experience. His ideas are simple but powerful but listening to him is inspirational. This is one fine book full of the kind of ideas that will help anyone discover a truer version (and more personal version) of quality of life.

Funny, insightful and uplifting. The concept of finding one's true passion and its relations to success is not new, but this book presents it exceptionally well. I especially enjoyed his emphasis on creativity, which is often underplayed, if not stifled in our society. Real life examples from economist and cartoonist alike make it tangible and easy to relate to. Highly recommended.

This is a really important read. Sir Ken Robinson does an excellent job of explaining why some people are lost, and others are thriving in our society. My wife and I both loved reading this book.

Strongly recommend it.

This touches on areas I hadn't expected and had a profound effect. I'd recommend the audio version as his sense of humor really comes through. Not necessarily groundbreaking concepts, but the information is presented in a way that had tremendous impact and made me looking at creativity, public education, and one's life purpose in a new way. Potentially life-changing.

"History is full of examples of people who didn't discover their real creative abilities until they discovered the media in which they thought best. In my experience, one of the main reasons that so many other people think they're not creative is that they simply haven't found their medium."
