it was amazing

Often dry in parts, but everyone should read this book; especially those with kids heading to college; especially those who wonder why the U.S. ranks so far below other industrialized nations in terms of math scores, sciences scores, reading scores, writing scores. Presents an argument of how college curricula + academia needs (and some are) to shift from post-Industrial Revolution Era production-consumerism to a new renewable resource industries and/or adapt them to existing frameworks if our economy, our children and their job prospects, and our earth will flourish into the future.
