Quotes - Quotations for learning
Top-selling authors' favorites

Gordon Dryden and Dr. Jeannette Vos have chosen a unique format for their top-selling book of 1999,The Learning Revolution.
On every left-hand page of the 544-page book, they have selected a favorite quotation or a graphic, to summarize the text on the right-hand page.

They have also included the main ones in a series of CD-ROM Powerpoint color slides that accompany the book. To warm up an audience, both authors select from these slides, and screen them, at 15-second intervals, to background music, for up to five minutes before starting any presentation
