Summary Statement: Inspiring, Enlightening, Informative—Read It and Then Put the Advice Into Action!

I first learned of Sir Ken Robinson through watching his lecture “Do Schools Kill Creativity” free on the Internet last year (his talks have been viewed millions of times by people across the world). In that talk he mentions he was in the process of writing a book — THE ELEMENT: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything — is that book. I was thrilled to be able to attend a lecture, one of the first stops on the book tour to promote this book and was so inspired I bought the book immediately.

This book’s audience is every person in the world, every single one of us could benefit from reading and applying the information in this book. In addition to being about changes that a person can make in their own life during adulthood, the book also speaks to teachers and other adults who are involved in educating children. People interested in learning styles, learning disabilities, alternative education and education reform may be interested in this book. All types of artists and creative people may like to read THE ELEMENT.
