About the Author
ABOUT THE AUTHORS Charles J. Schwahn has made his professional life a study of leadership and effective organizations. For the past 30 years he has worked with school systems and businesses throughout North America providing consultation on the topics of leadership, change, and future-focused strategic design. His career has placed him in nearly all the critical roles of the education profession, and his last "real" job was as superintendent of the Eagle County School District in Vail, Colorado. Chuck received his doctorate from the University of Massachusetts, where Ken Blanchard of The One-Minute Manager fame was his doctoral chair. Chuck is co-author of Total Leaders: Applying the Best Future-Focused Change Strategies to Education, Total Leaders 2.0: Leading in the Age of Empowerment, and Learning Communities 2.0. Chuck and his wife Genny spend their summers in the Black Hills of South Dakota and winters in the Phoenix area. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Beatrice McGarvey has consulted with educators throughout the United States and Canada in the areas of teaching and learning, leadership and organizational development. Her knowledge and experience is a result of the thirty-year career she enjoyed in Maine schools - as a classroom teacher, as a middle school counselor and administrator, and as a district and state leader, including serving as Executive Director of Education for the Portland Public Schools in Portland, Maine and as President of Maine ASCD. Bea received her B.S. and M.Ed. degrees from the University of Southern Maine and is proud to be a Partner in Total Leaders Associates, a Senior Associate at Marzano Research Lab, and a faculty trainer for International ASCD. She is co-author of The Future is Now: Shifts and Trends That are Redefining Organizations, Careers, and Life and Total Leaders: A Leadership Curriculum used by the Pennsylvania Leadership Development Consortium. Her large and growing family of four grandchildren and nineteen nieces and nephews prove Bea's theory that all children are born with an inherent will and motivation to learn. Her mission has been to create learning environments which do not extinguish this natural drive. Bea and her husband Richard spend eight months enjoying the beautiful coast of their native Maine and four months appreciating the desert and mountains of Arizona. She can be reached at email@example.com. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

As an educator outside of the US system, I think that the content is both thought provoking and a call to action. Reading it led to a lot of reflection on common teaching practice by offering an alternative method, using technology and other tools, to personalize learning and maximize achievement for today's students. The authors are not simply tinkering with the existing model but offer a new approach.
Complementary tools from the follow up text 'It's Inevitable' leads to a complete approach for those willing to 'grasp the nettles' of modernizing the education system without losing the good we already have.
