About this ebook

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.

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 transform­ing education, business, and communities in the twenty-first century.

Also available from Ken Robinson is Imagine If, a call to action that challenges and empowers us to reimagine our world and our systems for the better, through a compilation of Sir Ken's key messages and philosophies.

Third-party review
It was OK. Not quite what I was expecting. Maybe that is more of an indictment on me than the book...
Third-party review
Even in Portuguese (only version found in Portugal) , Ken Robinson knows what to say and the examples he give in here are something to consider. Very Recomendable book
