What about Me?

Written by: Ed Young

First line: Once there was a boy who wanted knowledge, but he did not know how to gain it.

Why you should read this book: Based on a Sufi legend, this parable follows a time honored tradition in discussing the pursuit of wisdom, namely that it can only be acquired through experience. When a boy asks a master for knowledge, he is sent on a journey that forces him to consider others' perspective. Thus does he gain the knowledge that he desired.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You think education involves teaching people what to think, rather than how to think.
