Summary In this unique attempt to address the dilemma in contemporary education, the noted cognitive scientist weaves the lessons garnered from three vantage points-his own traditional education as an American child, his years of research on creativity at Harvard, and what he saw in modern Chinese classrooms-into a program for creativity that draws the best of both modes, traditional and progressive.
