About the Author

Todd Rose is a faculty member at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, international lecturer, and leading thinker in the field of Educational Neuroscience. Today, Todd works at the forefront of innovation in learning science and education, contributing new insights about learning variability, and helping to design new educational technologies flexible enough to support all students in reaching their full potential.

Katherine Ellison is a Pulitzer-prize winning journalist, who has written three books on neuroscience and learning differences, most recently including Buzz: A Year of Paying Attention, as well as related articles for media including The New York Times, The Washington Post, and The Atlantic magazine.

Together, Rose and Ellison bring you the story of Todd Rose's extraordinary comeback from a teenaged high-school dropout with a pregnant wife and job stocking shelves in a department store to one of America's foremost young experts on education, learning differences, and creativity. Square Peg also educates parents, teachers, and other interested readers about the fast-paced recent changes taking place in U.S. classrooms, relating why the technology-enabled classrooms of the future may soon be more engaging, innovative, and accessible than ever before.
