Summary
The element is the point at which natural talent meets personal passion. Draws on stories of a wide range of people, from ex-Beatle Paul McCartney to Matt Groening, creator of "The Simpsons"; from Meg Ryan to Gillian Lynne, who choreographed the broadway productions of Caats and "The Phantom of the Opera"; and from writer Arianna Huffington to renowned physicist Richard Feynman and others, including business leaders and athletes. 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. Looks at the conditions that enable us to find ourselves in the element and those that stifle that possibility. Shows that age and occupation are no barrier, and once we have found our path we can help others to do so as well. Provides an essential strategy for transforming education, business and communities to meet the challenges of living and succeeding in the 21st century
