Why we need to stop wasting public funds on education Despite being immensely popular—and immensely lucrative—education is grossly overrated. Now with a new afterword by Bryan Caplan, this explosive book argues that the primary function of education is not to enhance students' skills but to signal the qualities of a good employee. Learn why students hunt for easy As only to forget most of what they learn after the final exam, why decades of growing access to education have not resulted in better jobs for average workers, how employers reward workers for costly schooling they rarely ever use, and why cutting education spending is the best remedy. Romantic notions about education being "good for the soul" must yield to careful research and common sense—The Case against Education points the way.
A masterful, moving novel about age, memory, and family from one of the true literary icons of our time. Ptolemy Grey is ninety-one years old and has been all but forgotten-by his family, his friends, even himself-as he sinks into a lonely dementia. His grand-nephew, Ptolemy's only connection to the outside world, was recently killed in a drive-by shooting, and Ptolemy is too suspicious of anyone else to allow them into his life. until he meets Robyn, his niece's seventeen-year-old lodger and the only one willing to take care of an old man at his grandnephew's funeral. But Robyn will not tolerate Ptolemy's hermitlike existence. She challenges him to interact more with the world around him, and he grasps more firmly onto his disappearing consciousness. However, this new activity pushes Ptolemy into the fold of a doctor touting an experimental drug that guarantees Ptolemy won't live to see age ninety- two but that he'll spend his last days in feverish vigor and clarity. With his mind clear, what Ptolemy finds-in his own past, in his own apartment, and in the circumstances surrounding his grand-nephew's death-is shocking enough to spur an old man to action, and to ensure a legacy that no one will forget. In The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey, Mosley captures the compromised state of his protagonist's mind with profound sensitivity and insight, and creates an unforgettable pair of characters at the center of a novel that is sure to become a true contemporary classic.

Nature, As One Sees It is a collection of poems about nature in diverse environments. In part one, "A Celebration," the reader experiences some of the places and creatures in Florida and Philadelphia that inspired William Bartram's great nature work, Travels. Bennett translates poetically Bartram's observations into a contemporary two hundredth anniversary setting. "Tidemarks" lyrically transports the reader to Bennett's summer coastal haunts in Maine and Washington. Here the creatures and habitats are in sharp contrast to those that appear in the Florida settings. The natural history of north central Florida, in and around a swimming pool set in a mesic hammock, is the subject for "Aquarius." "At the Beach" gives Bennett's insights into the cultural and natural history of Florida's gulf coast. A native Floridian, Bennett has combined his scientific and museum experiences along with an appreciation of natural history in this four-part nature work. Mary Oliver has commented about the author: "Peter Bennett is an accomplished professional in the field of natural science. His poems primarily meditations upon this natural world are succinct and wry. Their intent is not to persuade through language but, through the imposition of informed fact upon our consciousness, to make the reader come to a necessary conclusion."
