And speaking of TEDs, I also liked a lot of the content in this next one by writer Susan Cain. As someone whose child asks "why do we have to do group work at school?" I found a lot to be interested in here (sure, Cain has a book to promote... but that's no crime). It's worth getting to the end ("Stop the madness for constant group work. Just stop it.").
Back to the reading now.
