made obsolete by 'MostLikelyToSucceed'-still great

if you can read all three.
read this book first
then Creating Innovators
and then Most Likely to Succeed

if you plan on reading only one or two. then "Most likely to Succeed" is the best choice. and creating innovators should come next.

that is not to knock this work. this book contains years of research and expertise and brilliant solutions to our educational impasse

making school spiritually fulfilling and academically rewarding is not only possible and desirable but absolutely necessary for the 21st century

a 21st century world needs to raise children who will be crtical thinkers, expert communicators, skilled collaborators, and innovative creators

we cannot rely on a 20th education for 21st century succees

anyone who wants to change the world for the better must read tony wagner. his ideas are absolutely vital.

Outstanding work

The book touches the jugular vein of the educational system based on American standards. However, solutions are urgent, and without partisanship. Best book since Joe L. Kincheloe's books.
