PRAISE FOR A Whole New Mind “This book is a miracle. On the one hand, it provides a completely original and profound analysis of the most pressing personal and economic issue of the days ahead—how the gargantuan changes wrought by technology and globalization are going to impact the way we live and work and imagine our world.

A Whole New Mind takes readers to a daring new place, and a provocative and necessary new way of thinking about a future that's already here.
