The Organization Man is history. Taking his place is America's new economic icon: the free agent - the job-hopping, tech-savvy, fulfillment-seeking, self-reliant, independent worker. Already 30 million strong, these new dis-organization men and women are transforming America in ways both profound and exhilarating.

In this landmark book, Daniel H. Pink offers the definitive account of this revolution in work. He shows who these free agents are - from the marketing consultant down the street to the home-based mompreneur to the footloose technology contractor - and why they've forged a new path. His entertaining and provocative account of the new frontier of work reveals how free agents are shaking up all of our institutions - from politics to education to the family.

Hip and hopeful, meticulously researched and joyously iconoclastic, Free Agent Nation will change your thinking - and maybe even change your life. Download and start listening now!
