深思和实践� 一场意义深远的读书讨论

�David and Goliath� by Malcolm Gladwell

父母子女教育俱乐部热忱邀请您参加读书与实践的讨论。一本好书是可以帮助我们开启新的思维方式,开阔选择视野。廖冰博士将就此书的实践意义,结合多年教育经验,带领讨论如何帮助孩子选择学校和工作。不论是否读过此书,这场讨论都可以起到提炼精化,点明教育误区,促进对书中概念的消化吸收。

Here is a short excerpt from one of the many book reviews � � Innovation is one of Gladwell�s favorite topics, and the book makes you think differently about what it takes to be innovative. Our clich� about innovation is that someone has to be able to �think outside the box,� but Gladwell spends much more time exploring how adversity can bring forth personalities capable of changing the world. It�s not just the ability to think outside the box that matters � one has to possess a personality capable of persevering through rejection, repudiation, and setbacks in order to make the world work differently. Such personalities are often hardened by setbacks encountered at a young age.� - KENT ANDERSON

Insights and Real World Applications � A Guided Discussion

�David and Goliath� by Malcolm Gladwell

Here is a short excerpt from one of the many book reviews � �Innovation is one of Gladwell�s favorite topics, and the book makes you think differently about what it takes to be innovative. Our clich� about innovation is that someone has to be able to �think outside the box,� but Gladwell spends much more time exploring how adversity can bring forth personalities capable of changing the world. It�s not just the ability to think outside the box that matters � one has to possess a personality capable of persevering through rejection, repudiation, and setbacks in order to make the world work differently. Such personalities are often hardened by setbacks encountered at a young age.� - KENT ANDERSON
