About this Event:
What do you know now that you wished you'd known when you were just starting out? Daniel Pink, best-selling author of A Whole New Mind and Free Agent Nation, has investigated this question and came up with an answer in a very unique format... The Adventures of Johnny Bunko, the ultimate career guide for the 21st century, is the first American business book in the Japanese comic format known as manga! Join us for a special presentation on the six counterintuitive lessons for professional success and personal fulfillment. You'll learn that there is no plan, that talent is overrated, and that it's not about you. Added bonus: Everyone gets a free pair of chopsticks. (It'll make sense. Trust us.)
Dan Pink's book A Whole New Mind is a New York Times and BusinessWeek bestseller and has been translated into 16 languages. His previous book, Free Agent Nation, "has become a cornerstone of employee-management relations" says Publishers Weekly. A free agent himself, Dan held his last real job in the White House, where he served as chief speechwriter to Vice President Al Gore.
Copies of Dan Pink's books may be purchased in advance at a 20% discount by contacting HOOKS BOOK EVENTS via email.
We are joined by YES!Circle and the Wharton Club of DC. Members may register at the discounted member rate.
