“Is the Internet Changing the Way You Think?” edited by John Brockman

Rating: 3/5. This is a collection of over 150 responses to the titular question, “Is the Internet Changing the Way You Think.” The format is both interesting and irritating. My review veers into a personal response to the question.


“The Death and Life of the Great American School System” by Diane Ravitch

Rating: 3/5. This book discusses how standardized testing and school choice are undermining the success of public education. While I thought the book had flaws, it still contains some fascinating information. I also list two other books on education that I think offer better value for your time.

  • Who am I?

    My name is Aaron Dalton. See the "About Me" link for more information. The name Perlkönig is a combination of my favourite programming language (Perl) and the title of one of Franz Schubert's most famous lied (Erlkönig).
