About the book:  
The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything
by Sir Ken Robinson with Lou Aronica

"The Element is the place where passion and skill meet. People find The Element when they engage in the thing that they love that they are also especially good at doing. This leads to more than just a sense of personal satisfaction. Being in The Element insulates people against unpredictable changes and leads to a more flexible and productive society. The new paradigm of The Element has a profound impact on education, corporations, organizations, and, especially individuals. It is available to every person who knows how to find it. The Element is an enlightening tour through this new paradigm. Illustrated by stories, many based on exclusive interviews, of celebrities, entrepreneurs, scientists, and other highly accomplished people who have found The Element, it is as entertaining as it is profound."

The link below is a video of the author discussing the book in Los Angeles, and giving an overview of what he calls “The Element” and why it is important for all of us to understand and try to find it in our lives.
