When John Cleese calls your book ‘brilliant’, and your presentation on education and creativity is the #1 watched video on TED.com, you know you’ve done something right. And needless to say Sir Ken Robinson has done something right in writing this book, exploring the fields of education, creativity, and why we are destined to fail at being creative unless we change some fundamental things in the way we teach, learn, communicate and understand society.
Loved it because:
- Deep understanding of creativity, social dogma’s and the problem at hand
- Inspirational stories that make the theory come alive
- Informative yet entertaining writing style that makes you keep on reading
- Exploring fundamental stuff that holds the promise of big, big changes ahead
You might not like it because:
- The book raises many questions the curious reader wants to see answered, but don’t get answered directly. The book explores, uncovers and envisions, not nessecarily answers the though questions it poses.
- The book made me want to read more once I got through it. The high phase, joke and idea filled pages just seem to fly by as you read and suddenly come to a full stop at the last page.
