Editorial Reviews

David Perkins
"Art Costa has done more than anyone I can think of to advance the practical cause of more thoughtful education."
Robin Fogarty
“To read the myriad ideas in this robust collection, the reader is soon privy to a noble and notable vision of schooling in which mindfulness permeates the metaphorical walls of the school and all of its structural components: the curriculum, the instruction, and the reflective practices of those immersed in the vision.”
Bena Kallick
"What is the next best thing to having the opportunity to be in one of Art Costa's presentations? It is clearly the opportunity to read and reread his work. He has a knack for making the theoretical understandable and the practical 'practice-able.'"
Charles F. Adamchik Jr.
"Presents fascinating and vital information that lays a strong foundation for the teaching of thinking, something that is badly needed today. It will have a broad appear in both the education and business worlds. I'm amazed at how much I've learned from reading it!"
