How Its Use Shapes the Brain, Language, and Human Culture
Frank R. Wilson
The Hand is one of the most incredible books I’ve read in years. What a beautiful, thorough study of that feature of our bodies which, in absolute fact, makes us truly human. Wilson so completely and so beautifully demonstrates the relationship between the way we use our hands and the way we come to see our world and are enabled to see our world that the argument that there is little difference between a virtual experience and a real, hands-on experience ought to evaporate once and for all. The implications for education are both clear and vast – as are the implications for how we choose to live our lives and guide our children in other ways. Please read this wonderful book – when this information becomes commonplace, children’s lives will be so much more as they truly need to be, and the world will sing for joy.
