Carlsbad Reads Together

Carlsbad Reads Together brings community members together and engages them in discussion about the same selection of books at the same time. Carlsbad Reads Together 2018 celebrates author Daniel H. Pink. 

Daniel Pink is a New York Times bestselling author and renowned TED Talk Speaker. He is the author of several provocative books - including his newest title When: The Scientific Secrets to Perfect Timing, to be published in January 2018. His other books include the long-running New York Times bestseller A Whole New Mind and #1 New York Times bestsellers Drive and To Sell is Human. His books have won multiple awards and have been translated into 35 languages. Pink's TED Talk on the science of motivation is one of the top 10 most-watched TED Talks of all time, with more than 19 million views. He lives in Washington, D.C. with his wife and their three children. 

Pink's works focus on big ideas to reshape our work, transform our businesses and change our lives. Learn how to Think Like Pink by viewing his TED Talk and reading his featured titles.
