But the book is much more than tips and tools and techniques. It also provides information on various learning-situation elements—skewed information, perhaps, but as S/oren Kierkegaard observed, “Education without bias is like love without passion.” You’ll hear my educational-beliefs coming through: I don’t believe, for example, in long lectures. I’m opposed to death by PowerPoint. I think people have to get involved in order to get educated. I prefer table groups to lecture-hall seating.
