Couldn't pause, awesome approach to bridging the gap.

I couldn't stop listening to the audio book. It consumed my whole day. I replayed certain segments for note taking and better understanding. I will require my management team to read the book or listen to the audible. A must read for teachers and academic administrators. While this is a great resource for college level , I believe the greatest impact is K-12. We can change a generation by using the BOP teachings.
