Honestly, as a Math Teacher and as a mother, this is the best book I have ever encountered on the topic.
Boaler does an excellent job exploring the importance of math for today's digital citizens while discussing the need for changes in teaching practices.
If you're seeking a book that will generate discussion about changes that need to take place in to the math curriculum. This is a great resource to begin reflecting on current practices and exploring new directions.
