This is the best book on learning that I have read for many years and I recommend it to all those who want to rethink the way they work. It is a book free of jargon and full of thoughtful and thought provoking ideas.
If you care about how we make schools the kind of places our kids actually want to be in, buy this book!
Still, it opened my eyes to some current issues in the field of education, and will definitely help in interviews!
