By Ken Robinson, Ph.D., with Lou Aronica

This New York Times bestseller focuses on the challenge of finding and pursuing work that matches our talents and passions to achieve well-being and success.

The element is what he identifies as the point where the activities individuals enjoy and are naturally good at come together. Offering a wide range of stories about the diverse paths of different people have taken to the element – including Paul McCartney, Paulo Coelho, and Vidal Sassoon as well as lesser-known figures – Robinson conveys his vision of human ability and creativity.

Covering such topics as the power of creativity, circles of influence, and attitude and aptitude, Robinson emphasizes the importance of nurturing talent along with developing an understanding of how talent expresses itself differently in every individual. Emphasis is placed on the importance of mentors and reforming and transforming education in developing creativity.
