Steven Harrison with this book extrapolates his investigation into education and more: He starts with how we inherited the current educational system and how the educational system is moulding children's minds to the tune of ideas, dogmas and usefulness as percieved by the society; He argues vehemently how the customer, the children/student is never asked what they want, in turn it is assumed by the educators what the customer requires; The children in turn never end up realizing their true potential/passion and in turn end up becoming Parents keeping the vicious cycle alive; The current system also fails to understand the nature of reality, the extensive impact of virtual reality on children's mind and the impact of the infomation age, this in turn results in an inadequate response by the existing education system to the challenges faced by the society as a whole; He argues for a paradigm shift from what we all collectively view as education to a holistic education that reponds to the children's potential, passion and interests resulting in a healthy and a productive society.
