"A brilliant teacher, Christensen brings clarity to a muddled and chaotic world of education." -Jim Collins, bestselling author of "Good to Great" According to recent studies in neuroscience, the way we learn doesn't always match up with the way we are taught.

Johnson take one of the most important issues of our time-education-and apply Christensen's now-famous theories of "disruptive" change using a wide range of real-life examples.
