"When people learn that more money is spent on prisons than education, that you could send a prisoner to Harvard for less money than it takes to incarcerate him or her, there is surprise, then understanding."

I didn't love the format of this book and I wish some of the questions were more in depth (the way this book is written provides a bio for each interviewee, but it also assumes that one is familiar with their work) but overall it shares some important thoughts.

I don't think this is the best
