I love watching Ken Robinson's TED talks. He's a wonderful speaker, so I was excited to get my hands on this book. I had to get it through Interlibrary loan from University of Wyoming. I'm sad to say that I was pretty disappointed. It wasn't focused or deep enough for me to come away with many new insights. There were so many statistics in the first couple of chapters that they lost their punch. I agree with him on many points, especially about how school systems need to change to prepare students for the work force of today, which is much weaker in labor industries and much stronger in intellectual capital areas. I also liked his comments on failings in higher education to allow students of the arts to "do" music or "do" literature instead of just writing about the works of other musicians or writers.
