Dan Pink’s new career advice — in manga!

Over the years, Dan Pink has written many pieces that I’ve found truly inspiring, from his 1997 Fast Company cover story Free Agent Nation to his more recent book A Whole New Mind.

Now he’s going to offer career advice in a whole new form: manga.  You can sample the first section of The Adventures of Johnny Bunko here (pdf),  or read a short BusinessWeek review. The theory, I guess, is that people don’t read long books anymore, so it’s time to deliver material to them in as accessible a format as possible.

I’m a huge fan of visual information and graphic works, from Understanding Comics to Fun Home and Persepolis, so go, Dan!

    Jerry- you should also check out “Harvey & Etsuko’s Manga Guide to Japan” which is this cool new guide to Japan which was made by two artists, one in Japan and one in the US (a friend of mine.)

    Interview with the authors here:

    Hmm, not sure if you got my first comment or not?

    Ok, maybe not. Let me repost.

    “Harvey & Etsuko’s Manga Guide to Japan” is another manga-form book (in this case a guidebook to Japan) which was published by an artist in Japan and one in the US (who’s a friend of mine.)
