David Pearl is an innovator working in business, the arts and social change. This is his third book, following Will There be Donuts?, on the art of meeting, and Story for Leaders, a handbook for anyone who wants to harness the engaging power of narrative. He leads the international, non-profit social venture, Street Wisdom, which transforms ordinary city streets into inspirational learning zones around the world. He also keeps his creative instincts sharp making up operas on the spot with his improvising ensemble Impropera. David lives in London and Piedmont, Italy with his family. He is an eager pilot who doesn't fly as much as he would like and an enthusiastic, if out of breath, road cyclist.
