"Professors Glazek and Sarason have written a creative and instructive book that will be read for years to come. Drawing upon their backgrounds in physics and psychology, they support Einstein’s recommendations as to the importance of the humanities. The authors help readers acquire a substantive grasp of how Einstein accomplished what he did and the implications of this for educational reform. The reader’s view of teaching and learning will be forever changed by the authors' insights."
"This is an interesting and provocative book, written by a psychologist with several thousands of hours of observation and analysis of classroom teaching in public schools, and a physicist. The book starts with a critique of teaching in our schools and explains why educational reform has been so minimal in its effects. The movie "Mr. Holland's Opus" is used as a distinguisher between good and bad teaching methodology. These chapters are followed by physics chapters on the foundation of Einstein's E=mc2.
"Fans and disciples of Seymour Sarason all know that education reform needs a change in course. Indeed, the daily practices of schools, education research, and US educational policy all need such a change. Neither Professors Glazek and Sarason, nor anyone else, can give yet a complete description of what these changes would involve. But when the change happens, the leaders of the change will all acknowledge their considerable debt to this book.
"By making accessible and intelligible Einstein's theory of relativity, this remarkable book reveals to its readers the power and possibilty of their own learning, and, in doing so, brilliantly demonstrated the power and necessity of productive learning for everyone."
"Just as splitting the atom changed the world of science, the authors believe that education needs a similar event to release a burst of reform. This book reveals the power and possibility of learning."
"An integrative, thoughtful, and novel approach. The text is written in an inviting and dialogical manner. It appears both scientific and casual—as an interactive exchange of ideas."
"Recommended to those who want to spend some considerable time pondering the social environment of education and its effect, good or bad, on learning."
