    … but learning isn’t. I wrote my first book, Crush School: Every Student’s Guide To Killing It In The Classroom after realizing that most interesting education books are written for adults, and the ones students are forced to use in class mostly suck. They’re not just uninteresting. They are dull and written in some weird code no one can, or wants to understand.
