Bob,

I am so delighted that I found your website. I look forward to learning more from you and your participants.

I am sure you are aware of Mark Bauerlein's new book "The Dumbest Generation - How the Digital Age Stupefies Young Americans and Jeopardizes Our Future Or, Don't Trust Anyone Under 30." If not, Dr. Bauerlein's book provides an enormous amount of empirical data on how the millenials spend their time - 2 million minutes in high school - and why this generation is so dumb.

Another excellent book is Russell L. Ackoff and Daniel Greenberg's new book "Turning Learning Right Side Up - Putting Education Back on Track." In their book, the authors provide a terrific model on how to re-inject "Learning" back into education.

Both of these books belong in your recommended reading column in my opinion. I hope you enjoy them.

Jim
