Interesting book, but Wilson spends most the time describing educational intervention programs that don't work, why they don't work and why the government spends so much money on them.
I was hoping for more in-depth information on methods that are effective in changing behavior. These experiments are briefly described before moving on to the next popular program that doesn't work.
However, I would recommend it to parents, teachers, school board members, political leaders and anyone with a stake in the effectiveness of institutionalized education.

Redirect was not very exciting but it had a number of interesting tidbits. The narrator, Gover Gardner, was great as usual. Redirect tries to make it clear that we, as a society, should test ideas with experiments before spending millions on programs that ???make sense??? but may not actually be affective. Redirect also describes the interesting technique of ???Story Editing??? which, although not as magical as The Secret, would likely be more successful.

Evidence based strategies for helping yourself, your loved ones and those you work with to do better and be better. Wilson delivers in a low key style and has a solid commitment to using well evidenced cases and arguments
