“Many people make the mistake of confusing information with knowledge. They are not the same thing. Knowledge involves the interpretation of information. Knowledge involves listening.”
-HENNING MANKELL, “The Art of Listening,” New York Times

Edward’s interest in how people learn and process information has led him to mix the disparate fields of sports, martial arts, dance, psychology, cognitive science, information theory, and political economy into both his teaching and writing.
In his free time Edward likes to roll around on the floor, walk in circles and stare into space.
