The book stems from the belief that education is a personal project and that we alone are responsible for our education . Often , a discussion about education becomes a discussion about teaching , but rarely about learning .Needless to say , teaching is an important aspect of education , but given the student -teacher ratios practically available anywhere in the world and the contact hours practically affordable , a lot of education becomes about learning and the seeking after knowledge , rather than about teaching and the dissemination of knowledge. Having said this ,my observation has been that as educators and as education bodies, we have failed our youth in equipping them the adequate tools for learning .One the one hand , we expect our students to outperform themselves and become creative in the production of work that maintains a cutting edge ,and keeping abreast with developments anywhere in the world ; but on the other hand ,we have been unsuccessful in presenting a clear guidance on how students may channelize their efforts to achieve that end.
