Good content, not a great read though,
This review is from: Five Minds for the Future (Paperback)
Recently took this on holiday and was really looking forward to reading it having heard the author talk very entertainingly at various events (on mp3). The content was very insightful and valuable for anyone thinking about their future (and how to thrive in the world of work) and would recommend reading it.
2 negative comments though - during his description of the last 2 minds (respect and ethical) the author sounds less like he is presenting his thoughts of the future and more like he is simply preaching (to his credit Gardner does concede this). The other negative is that it is not brilliantly written. Despite being a fascinating subject, the book is quite dull and reading it felt like a bit of a chore. Thankfully the book is short at 150ish pages so still worthwhile.
