I'm quitting this book after just a few pages. I started reading it at Disney World last year (last April, actually) and just couldn't get into it. At the time I thought it was because of WHERE I was, but now I think that it was more WHAT the book was. I expected a sort of trivia book filled with "DID YOU KNOW?!" type questions. Instead I found a criticism of textbooks and American education in general. Not that the criticism isn't valid, but the book simply wasn't what I was expecting.
I had every intention of picking this up again at some point but softdrink at Fizzy Thoughts says it doesn't get any better. In fact, it was her review that prompted me to give up on this one - she says everything I was thinking so go check it out. Thanks softdrink - you saved me hours of fruitless reading!
