Book ideas

Ideas for books to write:

"Make me think: The School for Genius":
  • A guide to figuring things out for yourself
  • Learning philosophy:
    • discovery learning
    • learning by doing
    • drawing connections
    • open-ended
    • verification (how do I know that's right?)
  • Guides the reader through the essence of several subject through hints and puzzles
  • Unconventional approaches
  • Suitable for bright teens & life-long learners

This sort of book would stand in a long tradition, including for example Descartes' Rules for the Direction of the Mind.
