    Brilliant. This book, like many others, talks about the dangers of capitalism on education, imagination, and thinking in general. However, it differs by (very successfully) showing the reader how to imagine new paradigms, ideas, and even worlds. Not quite a guidebook, more of a generative exercise in imagining a better world and worldview. Plus, a semi-nonfiction book written in the style of a play/conversation? Hell-fuckin-yeah. Cool book, cool ideas, and cool implications.

    The criticism of education is thoughtful and accessible. Some of the details of the imagined ideal university were difficult to understand.
