This is a very interesting and intense book that I personally found quite inspirational. I’ve always had a passion for gaining knowledge from other people, hearing other people’s life stories and learning lessons from them, so this book definitely kept my interest.

In The Learning Project, Rites of Passage over thirty different people of all different ages, histories, and circumstances are interviewed by the author about how their education began, how and what they learned, the decisions they’ve

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
The Learning Project: Rites of Passage by Lincoln Stoller is a thoughtful and well-researched collection of interviews from various people from all aspects of social background.
The author managed to show with this beautiful project that if you want to learn, you must be able to ask and ask the right questions at the right time.
The interviews are separated in some different areas of the human life.
For each theme, you

Interesting premise

Stoller's The Learning Project is a very interesting premise, and many of the stories can be inspirational. It brings to light rites of passages that help transform a person, and they can either be better or worse for it. The writing tells a story while bringing in the reader to think of their own rituals and transformations throughout life, and learning. It also sounds like there will be more like this to come, as this could be a never-ending project to uncover. I look

The Learning Project, by Lincoln Stoller, is a most amazing book, a powerhouse of intellectual and humanistic insights from a rare collection of diverse individuals of all ages and backgrounds.

The learning project

Hmmmm
What a strange yet interesting read.
I am not sure how to review as it is more of a book of learning, of experiencing, and observing how others live.
I read a collection of people's choices. How that changed them and the triumphs and failures, the risks they took and their successes.

The book is easy to read and understand BUT not does it make you think. The book's title catsuit all. It is a learning project. It is a rite of passage covering from young to old. But the

I think this book was complex. It was well done; well researched. I think it's too smart for me. I'm only partially kidding about that. It was a little too long and seemed to drag for me at times. It really makes you stop and think about things. It opens your eyes to things you probably never thought about before. It also made me think that I need to love myself more! I'd like to thank the author for my copy of this book; I won it on Twitter. :)

The Learning Project takes a wide view of the question of personal growth, getting out of framework of a particular age, age group, attitude, or subject. It's not Eastern or Western, liberal or conservative, Buddhist or Christian, Baby Boomer or Millennial.

In it, 35 people of all ages, cultures, and interests explain how they came to be, from the perspective of their own sometimes celebrated and sometimes violent lives. The somewhat surprising and uncorreographed conclusion appears to be that

The Learning Project is a massive work, showing many examples of the choices people make in their lives. It focuses on learning, how people have learned what it is they have needed for their very full lives; what comes forth is the way each individual has adjusted to and worked with the conditions of his/her life, while intending to move forward. These are very personal accounts.

One of the most remarkable things about The Learning Project is the sheer diversity that shows up as each person

Lincoln Stoller grew up around and was mentored directly by the colleagues of Frank Lloyd Wright, Alexander Calder, Bucky Fuller, and Albert Einstein. As a teenager, he traveled the world climbing mountains and, in the process, fell 1,000 feet off the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies, swam across the arctic sea, crashed his airplane, collapsed his horse, stepped in quicksand, was buried in an ...more
