The End of Average
By: Todd Rose
Book reviewed by: Steve Ramos
Todd Rose, the author of The End of Average, introduces readers to the potential faults of using "the average" to make determinations about what's best for an individual using a "one size fits all" approach. From fighter pilot cockpits to GPAs and SAT scores to personality tests, Rose exposes the lost potential of the individual by designing and comparing to "the average".
Why I Recommend This Book:
The End of Average really made a lot of sense to me! We are all unique. We all have strengths and these strengths are often context dependent. As a parent and educator, this book helped me see and understand the great value in maximizing the potential of individuals through their uniqueness!
