INTUITION AS RULER: Author Daniel Pink is not an anarchist. He's the how-to guru that takes Malcolm Gladwell's behavioral science fare and further simplifies it, making business models tailored to maps of our minds. So it's encouraging for many key-losers and math detractors that Pink's book A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future hails thinkers less set on logic as the leaders of intuitive, creative business. Hear Pink explain his theories and rep for his myth-busting new title, Drive: The Suprising Truth About What Motivates Us, at the Dallas Museum of Art as part of Arts and Letters Live. 7:30PM.
