Reviews

Forces us all to rethink our convictions on how schools should be designed to accommodate the ways that children learn.

-- "Steven Pinker, Harvard College Professor of Psychology"

All kids love learning. Most don't love school. That's a disconnect we've avoided discussing-until this lightning bolt of a book. If you've ever wondered why your curious kid is turning into a sullen slug at school, Peter Gray's Free to Learn has the answer. He also has the antidote.

-- "Lenore Skenazy, author of Free-Range Kids"

Bound to provoke a renewed conversation about turning the tide in an educational system that fosters conformity and inhibits creative thinking.

-- "Publishers Weekly"
