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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This book changed my future! Together with "The Element", this book brought about a change in direction and focus for my passions and skills. Now a year later, I am so happy I listened to that inner voice that suggested I combine two passions into one. At first I was doubtful, but you don't know the answer to questions unless you try them on for size. The knowing is in the doing, as they say. I would totally recommend both books.
