In this provocative book, evolutionary psychologist Peter Gray contends that children are naturally endowed with powerful educative instincts. He describes these instincts and shows how young people can educate themselves beautifully, in today's world, if we provide educational settings that work with their natural ways of learning instead of against them.

by Peter Gray
"All kids love learning. Most don't love school. That's a disconnect we've avoided discussing—until this lightning bolt of a book. If you've ever wondered why your curious kid is turning into a sullen slug at school, Peter Gray's Free to Learn has the answer. He also has the antidote."
—Lenore Skenazy, author of Free-Range Kids
