I learned a lot from reading this book. Many of the theories Robinson proposes are rooted in improving business performance and corporate creative output, but the underlying principles are applicable to education as well. I related to the idea of there being more than one aspect of intelligence, (an idea Robinson credits to various people including Howard Gardner) and I agree with many of his conclusions in this regard. I also think that he has a great point arguing that the arts are important in the development of "whole" children. This is not the first time I have heard him discuss this. Check out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iG9CE55wbtY where he also emphasizes the importance of a broader education for all children. In these days of streamlining education and restrictive budgets, I hope that practitioners and politicians take the time to consider the implication of phasing out the so called "unnecessary " subjects and remember the advantages to having a society rich with many diverse talents and contributions!

This is an excellent book. Every educator should read it. Ken Robinson is an excellent writer and speaker. Teachers should be given the opportunity to encourage creativity instead of having to bore students with "Drill and kill". I hope you will find it helpful and thought provoking.

He has terrific concepts and brings things people never think about to the surface and they are issues that need to be heard.

Ken Robinson has a gift for explaining complicated ideas clearly, concisely and with humor. The same style he uses to engage his Ted Talk audiences is used beautifully in this book. Important ideas!
