I do not know how many times I have listened to this book. I get something great from it everytime I listen. Use this book to help you get out of the same old way of thinking about things. Give it a chance, and you will generate great ideas.
This book is awesome. Five stars just isn't enough. If you moved around a bunch as a child with a military family or any other reason and have all kinds of wholes in your education you can relate to students who fall behind and never quite get the skills they need. Salman Khan's ideas when implemented, can help classroom teachers with all of their children. Technology in the classroom is not for doing away with teachers, but for helping them and empowering them to have an even greater positive influence on our children. I look forward to using Khan Academy Videos to fix my math skills.
I will most likely listen to this book many times. I have ADD and information doesn't always stick the first time. That is why I love Audible books. I can listen over and over again.
I was thinking this is the best business book I have ever read as I was walking into a bookstore to buy a few copies...when he had to interject intense personal opinions. It was as if he had bumped his head. This book has great ideas and material that if taught in schools and workshops that could turn our country around and could bring some out of poverty. A good editor could have kept Mr. Gerber from looking like a jerk in public. I have listened to this book at least four times and have to skip past his diatribes.
