This month at Foreword, we are dedicated to convincing everyone that knowledge matters. From addressing conspiracy theories, to impassioned pleas from people on the front lines of fact-finding, we think the power of knowledge and the power of books to deliver it are paramount in the world we live in.
That’s why we are so excited to offer you the chance to win one of five autographed copies of The Death of Expertise courtesy of our friends at Oxford University Press! The Death of Expertise—written and autographed by Tom Nichols, US Naval War College professor, Harvard Extension School adjunct professor, former aid in the US Senate, and five-time Jeopardy champion—dives deep into how the rise of Internet search engines and higher-education-as-a-business-model universities and colleges have given rise to anti-intellectualism, and the overall impact it’s having on social discourse. In other words: why knowledge matters.
Use the form below to enter for your chance to win by entering your email and pressing “submit.” Entry closes August 25.
