The War For Children's Minds

Review of my The War For Children's Minds in the Clarion Magazine... go here. Obviously you will want to follow this advice: "Buy it, read it and then buy a copy for the Head of your local school."

I just went into iTunes hoping that I could buy this as an audio book but no such luck.

I'd be curious to know how Audible.com (the largest audio book provider) determines which books to offer. I am currently listening to Lt. Col. Dave Grossman read his On Killing: The Psychological Cost of learning to Kill in War and Society. Fascinating and highly recommended. There is nothing better than listening to an author read his or her own work.

I remember as a teenager challenging the status quo, in particular challenging the local Anglican minister, whom I had known since early childhood (I lived in a country town).

The point is that teens are fertile brains for wanting to think for themselves and challenge authoritarianism. I remember at school wishing there were philosophy classes, even though I knew bugger all about it. My passion at that age was science.

I confess I haven't read it (I've read others of yours, which is how I came by your blog) but I probably should even though I have no kids.

Regards, Paul.
