"A veteran educator's uplifting account of how he introduced schoolchildren to global problems through a visionary game that charged them with saving the world . . . Inspired, breath-of-fresh-air reading." -- Kirkus Reviews "At a time when school systems have completely lost focus on what really matters, John Hunter reminds us what we should be teaching our children. His ideas will help anyone who has the courage to understand that a real education must go beyond filling in circles on a standardized test form." -- Rafe Esquith, author of Teach Like Your Hair's on Fire "John Hunter's World Peace Game is more than a brilliant example of educational game design. It shows us exactly how to inspire and manage creative collaboration around the most complex problems imaginable. And given that virtually all young people today are growing up gamers, this book is a must-read for twenty-first century educators and leaders." -- Jane McGonigal, author of Reality Is Broken: Why Games Make Us Better and How They Can Change the World "Hunter's optimism is infectious" -- Publishers Weekly "With numerous reflections on the game's impact on certain students and a resounding final chapter highlighting his class's 2012 visit to the Pentagon, Hunter proves the value of "slow teaching" in this important, fascinating, highly readable resource for educators and parents alike." -- Booklist
