New York, NY. Hachette Books.

The book lays out the framework for a new kind of education, grounded in the individual, not the fiction of one . The encounter so humbled me that I vowed I would wait to talk about my story in public only when I felt sure I could offer something useful for parents in similar predicaments.

The book lays out the framework for a new kind of education, grounded in the individual, not the fiction of one common learning pathway. Only with this new framework will schools recognize and celebrate the differences that make students unique. Only then will teaching and learning help all children to reach their potential. This must be the starting point of the new framework for education. A decade has passed, and today, at last, I have something to say. It’s Complex.

In the seventh grade, Todd Rose was suspended-not for the first time-for throwing six stink bombs at the blackboard, where his art teacher stood with his back to the class. At eighteen, he was a high school dropout, stocking shelves at a department store for $4.25 an hour. Today, Rose is a faculty member at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Square Peg illuminates the struggles of millions of bright young children--and their frustrated parents and teachers--who are stuck in a one-size-fits-all school system that fails to approach the student as an individual. Rose shares his own incredible journey from troubled childhood to Harvard, seamlessly integrating cutting-edge research in neuroscience and psychology along with advances in the field of education, to ultimately provide a roadmap for parents and teachers of kids who are the casualties of America's antiquated school system. With a distinguished blend of humor, humility, and practical advice for nurturing children who are a poor fit in conventional schools, Square Peg is a game-changing manifesto that provides groundbreaking insight into how we can get the most out of all the students in our classrooms, and why today's dropouts could be tomorrow's innovators.

I disagree with how two reviewers think this book lacks substance. I did read it from the perspective of a memoir as what the title suggests to me, and I found it full of honesty, courage, and detailed description about his emotional journey with schools, with his mother and father. It may not be "academic" or "scholarly" with hard-to-understand concepts (and I'm thankful it's not), but it certainly has depths in communicating what a wounded soul experienced so that other people can learn to act or create a system or an environment that won't wound another soul.

I first borrowed this book from the library because I don't buy any book until it passes my criteria to be a book that I need to go back to for reviews or if it's by an author I love. Well, I bought the book (Hardcover, not Kindle version--I don't know how to change this aspect of my review) because:

This is the first book I read by someone who describes his personal struggles with having ADHD. Before this book, all the information on ADHD-related topics that I read was written by some doctor(s) and psychologist who don't have ADHD (or at least they didn't say they do in the books). I read such information in order to learn how to parent my ADHD child and understand him more. These books by such mental and physical health professionals however don't help me to be as understanding and compassionate toward my son as Dr. Rose's book. "Squre Peg" helps me more intimately to see through what my son could possibly be experiencing personally because they do share some similar behavioral characteristics (e.g., forgetfulness, losing many things, disorganization), complaints about easily getting bored, and having an above-average IQ. When I first read this book, it was right before my bed time, and I really had a hard time putting it down because the writing immediately touched my heart and captivated my interest to find out "what's next." I like how at the end of each chapter there is the "Big Ideas" section that summarizes the chapter, and the "Action Items" section that suggests practical steps one can take to improve relationships with a person with learning disabilities (or simply a person difficult to get along with). These sections are very useful.

Yes, in an ideal world, I'd love to see how an education system can be customized for each individual. I hope technology can keep improving and teachers can keep growing in being genuinely caring for the well being of each student, so that the combinations of the two (technology and teachers or professors) can most effectively nurture and educate the new generations of human beings.

What makes this book different from all of the other books about successful people who had learning challenges is that the author, Todd Rose, takes his inspirational story a step further by offering suggestions on how to fix the broken areas of our educational system. Todd Rose has thoughtfully considered what enabled him to go from being a high school dropout to graduating from Harvard, and lists the 4 key areas that can help change the trajectory of a child's life.

I have read many books looking for inspiration for my son, who has an IQ of 130, but due to his ADHD and Dyslexia, has struggled, mostly unsuccessfully, to get through school. It's a tragedy that he has been made to feel stupid, only because our current school system is unable to educate him the way he needs and deserves to be educated. Only now, since we began homeschooling him in 10th grade, has he begun to see himself as a smart kid who has a bright future ahead of him. Interestingly, by following our gut, we have modeled his schooling on the 4 areas that Todd Rose suggests, and it was so reassuring to have it confirmed in this book.

I feel very strongly that we must begin to reevaluate our antiquated educational system, and I wish all school administrators would read this book and be spurred into action because of it. Thank you, Todd Rose, for sharing your painful journey!

In this largely autobiographical book, Todd Rose both confronts and proposes solutions for the obstacles many kids (and adults) face in dealing with their different learning styles. Todd has ADHD, and his descriptions of his experience growing up give a riveting front seat look at what that means. He also demonstrates the critical moments and supports that can transform this potential disadvantage into triumph, although this is not an ADHD as an advantage story. He readily demonstrates the many pitfalls and there often tragic costs, while at the same time giving sound advice on strategies we can all use to overcome them.
As a parent with two ADHD children, who also has ADHD, I found Todd's accounts poignant and believable. If you read this book you will know more than you do now, and you will be better prepared to help.

Wow. If you've ever thought of yourself (or someone you love) as a square peg, read this book. It's an easy read and right on target for people who don't fit and don't understand why. You'll see you're not alone, and most of all, you're not defective. Different is not a bad thing, and now you have it from a credible source.

Society has to educate the masses. How do we educate those who don't fall in line with the average? This is a story of one person who didn't fit the mold. It is a reminder to not give up on those who don't. But I don't know if this book answers the question on how to teach or deal with children who don't fit the norm teaching methods

Great insights into ADHD, especially for parents. I learned so much about myself and my son from reading this book. It supplies understanding and tools to deal with ADHD in real life, especially in today's public school system.

The author, as a boy, was THAT KID. You know, the one you tried to stay clear of. Hyper. Wielding a hurtful wit. Self-centered. Flunking everything academic, and distracting the class along the way.

But after flunking high school, he went on to work on the faculty of Harvard. How does a turnaround like that happen? Part of the answer (spoiler alert!) : medication. But there's much more to it than that, and that's where you come in.

This is a short work that makes strong points through well-told stories. It is refreshingly free of the self-important jargon that dominates most of the writing about pediatric psychology. If you are an educator, parent or grandparent and you want some insight about what the heck is going on in the mind of a difficult, impulsive child, this book is for you. It includes very useful language and examples that can help you make productive choices about how to respond constructively to misbehavior.
