Carl Honoré

Carl Honoré, originally uploaded by johnwmacdonald.

Carl Honoré, the bestselling author of "In Praise of Slow", makes a point about the state of education of children in current societies around the world. Finland, apparently is a model society when it comes to the education of the young. Honoré spoke to a filled room of interested readers as part of the Ottawa International Writers Festival.

Quill & Quire says, "Under Pressure can be viewed as a wake-up call to parents and educators, as well as a solid summary of how children are being raised in the 21st century. Honoré covers a lot of territory, investigating academic testing and homework issues, extracurricular activities and sports, consumerism, and safety issues. . . . This is not a parenting book or a how-to manual, but rather a comprehensive look at the state of the childhood nation."
