I'm a great fan of Ken Robinson but I was disappointed with this book. Two of the reviews on the cover refer to an "analysis" and that is exactly what it is: an analysis of the history of education. Contrary to its title this is not a "how to" book.
I found the writing to be repetitive, fusty and accademic, exactly what Ken Robinson is trying to change!
Because I do admire the author I stuck with it and found only the last two chapters to be worth reading.
