I am a big fan of Roger's work and frequently visit his websites for ideas and inspiration, so I was eager to read his new book. I was not disappointed! He provides some fascinating insights into the inner workings of the country's Kindergarten throught PhD education system. He has a novel understanding of how people think and learn and advocates creating an education system that is designed to focus on building cognitives skills and processes instead of focusing on the traditional academic content disciplines. As you read the book, you find yourself agreeing with many of his assertions and becoming angry at the entrenched system that blocks all attempts to allow his ideas to be implemented. Roger's fundamental approach to teaching and learning is through what he calls a Story Centered Curriculum. He follows his own advice by delivering most of the information in the book in a series of stories. The result is a very readable, enjoyable, and informative book. You should read it!
