"In a time when accepted scientific principles and facts themselves are being tossed into the fire of controversy by some, it is time again, now more than ever, to educate our educators. In Sir Ken Robinson's rich, deeply entertaining and inspiring new book, "The Element" we learn again. We learn how our academic systems were shaped long ago and why some parts of this 'knowledge' seems out of date. Ken Robinson shows us, in the most intriguing way and with humor and humility how we can look again at how we learn and how we teach. How and why we judge and how we appreciate and encourage others to find their own true selves, discovering a new light in the most unsuspected place, just inside of each and every one of us. I invite you to discover, as I have, The Element."

Every once in a while, someone writes a book that sheds a compelling new light on a subject.  Sir Ken's insight into creativity has done just that.  This book is filled with succinct yet brilliant ideas, is replete with vivid examples, and offers timeless application.  I have personally made it a required text for my university students and a must-read for my executive coaching clients.  The Element transcends traditional thought on how we think about and develop people in virtually any setting. Reading this provocative book will help business leaders, school administrators, parents, teachers, and anyone else who wants to unleash the potential associated with people finding and applying their passions in life.

Suzanne J. Peterson, Ph.D.- Professor of Management and Leadership, W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University
The Element provides a real platform for our futures; it is essential reading for anyone with children, unfulfilled dreams or a life still to live.

Richard Gerver

The Element gives you the feeling that all is possible if we dig deeply within ourselves, utilizing imagination and curiosity.

Vidal Sassoon

At about six years of age, I discovered my passion...handstands.  Doing handstands made me feel truly alive.  It did not serve much of a practical purpose, but it was what I wanted to do.  I have always felt that if you can connect with your passion whether it be in schoolwork, music, business, volunteerism, or sports, you can translate those same feelings of joy and accomplishment into any area of your life.  Although Sir Ken Robinson did not set out to create a typical self-help book, I am incredibly inspired, and energized, by the anecdotes and lessons in The Element.
