What are three Aha! Moments (not mentioned already by others) you had after reading the book or watching the DVD? Keep it a short, simple, clear, and positive – what big ideas you had? what were you fascinated by? surprised by? curious about? etc.

Here are just three of many Aha! moments I had after reading the book and watching the DVD:

2. 15% of all the people living in India = 100% of the American workforce. Wow! Talk about the effects of outsourcing on the job market and on the careers/majors we choose…
3. “MFA is the new MBA”. I’m curious – which MBA programs are well known for integrating creativity in their curriculum?
