Teaching Computer Science: Those Who Don’t Like to Read16 Dec 2014 / Paul Epps
I recommended a couple of books that I’ve read recently and liked — Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand and Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman — to the class in case anyone was looking for a book to read over winter break or maybe as a holiday gift.
“What if you don’t like to read?” someone asked.
“Well, in that case you can spend your entire life inside your own head and never know or care what life looks like to other people.”
In hindsight, it occurred to me that I could have suggested audio books for people who don’t like to read, but . . . woulda coulda shoulda, you know what I’m saying?
