Gamma wants to write an awesome book for kids. It should contain things that are useful and entertaining. One idea we have is “how to win an argument”, which I suppose will contain tips on dismantling the fallacies in an opponent’s argument but also on fighting dirty.
I have already posed this question on my Twitter thing in a Tweet, but wanted to ask again here, since more useful ideas for useful and entertaining things for kids to put in the book would be helpful:
- what did you learn as a kid (not in school) that was extremely helpful to you?
- What did you learn later that would ahve been extremely helpful had you learned it as a kid?
- What have you still not learned that you wish you had?
- What misconception that you had as a kid was it really helpful to have cleared up?
Helpful in any sense of the word.
