Reviews

"Leslie...writes convincingly...about the human need and desire to learn deeply and develop expertise."--Wall Street Journal

"Leslie delineates the various types of curiosity and what might be lost as we lean on search engines and offload our memories to cloud storage. He's at his best when considering how socioeconomic conditions impede curiosity."
--New York Times Book Review
"A refreshingly commonsensical voice in the ongoing argument over how to best mold human minds."
--Scientific American Mind
"Ian Leslie's fine new book Curious constitutes an excellent bridge between the two sides of the facts vs. experiences learning debate."
--Inside Higher Ed
Highly recommended for educators of all kinds. Leslie reaches to the true heart of education - turning students into 21st-century learners by bringing back that curiosity."
--Library Journal
"A beautiful and important exploration of the need to nurture, develop, and explore our curiosity even when we've long left our childhood behind."
--Maria Konnikova, author of Mastermind: How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes

"With this enthralling manifesto on the power of curiosity, Ian Leslie has written a book that displays all the key characteristics of its subject matter: an inquisitive, open-minded, and ultimately deeply rewarding exploration of the human mind's appetite for new ideas."
--Steven Johnson, author of Where Good Ideas Come From
"This book is a beautiful and fascinating tribute to one of mankind's most important virtues."
--Tyler Cowen, George Mason University
