The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything

The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything (MP3 Book) - Ken Robinson, Lou Aronica This was my first venture into audiobooks. I feel kind of guilty counting this as "read". Listening to Ken Robinson sure made doing the dishes a lot more enjoyable. What I really took from this audiobook is that our educational system in the U.S. needs a complete overhaul. Well, I already know that, but Robinson really drove home the fact that public education is and has been draining creativity and imagination from ourselves and our children and that's one reason we all have such trouble finding our element -- that spark that gives us an idea about who we are and what we're passionate about. I love an English accent, so listening to Robinson for aprox. 8 hours was a joy :)
