"Offers life-altering insights about the discovery of your true best self."—Stephen R. Covey, author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

"The Element is another reminder of why Sir Ken Robinson is one of America's finest imports. With a crackling wit and deep humanity, he urges us to ignore the naysayers, bypass the crowd, and find the place where our talents and desires intersect. This is a truly inspiring book."—Daniel Pink, author of Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us

"Ken Robinson presents the theme of creativity and innovation in a way that makes you want to go out and make your dreams a reality. In his wonderfully easy-to-read and entertaining style he presents the stories of many who have done just that...It is a book that lightens and lifts the minds and hearts of all who read it."—Susan Jeffers, Ph.D, bestselling author of Feel the Fear and DO it Anyway and Life is Huge!

Robinson hits a home run with Finding Your Element. The book is a how to guide to finding the point where your passion intersect with what you're good at. Exercises throughout the book help you identify your aptitudes, attitudes, and passions. Robinson illustrates his points with relevant tales of people who found their element to help you find yours. Robinson doesn't make promises like once you find your element you'll be able to make a living doing it. But he does promise your life will be enriched. This book is informative, interesting, and entertaining. I highly recommend it.
