Ken Robinson and Lou Aronica collaborated on The Element (2009) and do so again when explaining, in Finding Your Element (May 21, 2013) how to discover one’s talents and passions and, thereby, transform one’s life. Although Aronica no doubt made substantial contributions to both books, their “voice” is Robinson’s and it is indeed an eloquent and resonant one. As he explains in the Introduction, it is “the natural companion and sequel to The Element and offers advice, techniques and resources to put [various] ideas into practice in your own life.”
If you are searching for your own Element, “this book is for you.” For example, you may be:
o frustrated that you do not know what your real talents and passions are
o at school, wondering which courses to take and why
o trying to decide whether to go to college or to do something else instead
o in a job you don’t like and wondering where to turn
o in midlife or later and feeling the need for a new direction
o unemployed and trying to work out what to do now
“If you know people who are searching for their Element, this book is for them too.”
In my review of Finding Your Element and subsequent interview of Robinson, I will provide additional information about this book. Meanwhile, you may be interested in knowing something about its author.
