uscolia_frontcover_ariel3 We are all dealt by birthright one coupon for a free lunch: our native language–the one body of knowledge we all acquire without fail. It also gives us insight into how we learn without teaching: by exposure, observation, and imitation. Our brains are self-learning pattern-recognition and rule-building machines. The author tells the extraordinary story of the island of Uscolia, where children acquire native fluency in areas of their interest in free-flowing facilities called studios, without teachers. The author describes his own experience applying some of the principles that guide Uscolians in raising their children. separate ISBN:

NPP_FrontCover Fiction. William Wright, an undistinguished employee at a green startup in Cambridge, is awakened early one morning by a call from Norway informing him that he won the Nobel Peace Prize. The call sounds like a hoax and it is unlikely to reshape Will’s future. But it immediately changes his past as he reimagines everything by amended standards. In the 24 hours that pass before the Nobel Committee makes its official announcement, as clues that Will may indeed have won the Nobel Prize multiply, what started out as incredible gradually becomes inexplicable.
