Review:

"With so many self-styled experts issuing proclamations about education, it's high enough time to learn the views and recommendations of a thoughtful young person."
-Alan Kay, Turing Award Recipient, President of the Viewpoints Research Institute

"A passionate, outspoken teenager tells us how to improve education based on his own experiences and frustrations and his interviews with an array of experts." 
-Guido Van Rossum, Creator of the Python Programming Language, Dropbox Employee

"Education today faces three emerging and singular conditions. We are preparing a genuinely unique generation of children, within a significantly new digital information environment, for a future that we can no longer clearly describe. It is certainly time that educators combine the best of pedagogical research and our deeply held values, with the voices, experiences and ideas of students, who are entering our classrooms wired to learn." 
-David Warlick, Retired Itinerant Educator, Author, Programmer, 2011 Technology & Learning Magazine "Top Ten Most Influential People in EdTech" Recipient

"Aaron, at a very early age, is already a contributor to our society.  I'm sure this book is only the first of many to come from him."
-Dr. Robert Marzano, Founder of Marzano Research, Experienced Author and Speaker of Education Reform
