Stop Stealing Dreams
Quick Thought: just sharing something that I have found quite a provocation in the last week
Seth Godin’s latest manifesto, Stop Stealing Dreams, has been out for about a month now. I only got around to reading it last week, and I can highly recommend that you – whoever you are – read it too. The book is all about education and in particular the future of education. It very much follows the feeling and thinking of Sir Ken Robinson’s excellent TED Talks (this one and this one).
I really liked how the book covered the broad canvas of education, all the way from nursery through to postgraduate education. There is lots of stuff there to get you thinking – but more importantly to get you talking and sharing. A week after it was released Godin announced that close to half a million people had read the book – he estimated that if the book had been on-sale maybe three to fifteen thousand people would have got it. Which, in itself, is quite a thought-provoking idea…
Stop Stealing Dreams is free to download and share in a variety of formats. Go and do it, and then join the discussion.
