    How do other countries create "smarter" kids? In a handful of nations, virtually all children are learning to make complex arguments and solve problems they've never seen before. They are learning to think, in other words, and to thrive in the modern economy.What is it like to be a child in the world's new education superpowers? In a global quest to find answers for our own children, author and Time magazine journalist Amanda Ripley follows three Americans embed­ded in these countries for one year.

    André says: "Great teachers+ Raise kids' bar+ Don't exaggerate"
    "Well read, good info on U.S. vs. other schools"

    What did you love best about The Smartest Kids in the World?

    There was a lot of good information and I do think the author did some interesting research using exchange students to compare different learning experiences around the world in some of the higher scoring countries.


    If you could give The Smartest Kids in the World a new subtitle, what would it be?

    How can we improve our schools?

    The Guide to Investing Gold and Silver tells listeners the essential history of economic cycles that make gold and silver the ultimate monetary standard; how the U.S. government is driving inflation by diluting our money supply and weakening our purchasing power; and much more.

    Patrick says: "Great useful information"
    "Ok book, but not much real insight"
    Overall

    Gives some good historical info, and basics about buying metals, but I didn't come away feeling very educated about the pros and cons, or ins and outs of metals investing. Aside from that I do question his motivation. He does sell metals on his website where some of this info is for free too.
