The Element is the point at which natural talent meets personal passion. When people arrive at the Element, they feel most themselves, most inspired, and achieve at their highest levels.

The Element draws on the stories of a wide range of people: Paul McCartney; The Simpsons creator Matt Groening; Meg Ryan; Gillian Lynne, who choreographed the Broadway productions of Cats and The Phantom of the Opera; journalist Arianna Huffington; renowned physicist Richard Feynman; and many others, including business leaders and athletes. It explores the components of this new paradigm: the diversity of intelligence, the power of imagination and creativity, and the importance of commitment to our own capabilities.

With a wry sense of humor, Ken Robinson looks at the conditions that enable us to find ourselves in the Element and those that stifle that possibility. He shows that age and occupation are no barrier and that once we have found our path, we can help others do so as well. The Element shows the vital need to enhance creativity and innovation by thinking differently about human resources and imagination. It is an essential strategy for transforming education, business, and communities to meet the challenges of living and succeeding in the 21st century. Download and start listening now!

    " I first heard Ken Robinson at an online education conference and again on a TED Talk video. This book was the next logical step. Most of what he says about The Element is what it said about finding you bliss and following you heart for happiness and effectiveness. But what I like most is he perspective on the element and education, teaching and learning. These basic consideration and concerns are needed to make the necessary changes to our out of date and antiquated public school system. "

    " Ken Robinson is my new hero. He connected the economy, the environment and education reform. What all these have in common is that they need resources to survive - and the current educational system is not growing the resources in the ways that are needed. When businesses and governments are needing creativity and a more global view point, education systems rely on standardized tests and segmented curriculum. Sir Ken Robinson argues that individualizing education and allowing children to discover and develop their strengths will lead to a more holistic view of the world and transform society. These changes are greatly needed during this time of great revolution in technology and global connectivity. "
