It is a good overview of skills we need in the 21st century. There are flaws though.

Want an example? In the “critical thinking” section, the authors use questioning vaccines as a lack of critical thinking. Their evidence- the Center for Disease Control says vaccines cause no harm so it must mean anyone who questions vaccines lacks critical thinking. See the irony? I am not a defender of anti-vaccines, but the authors own lack of critical thinking is ironic.

// Employers want to hire excellent communicators, critical thinkers, and innovators-in short, they want brilliant people. \\
Oh yeah? Just what country or time period are these so-called employers in, and how did they suddenly become able to recognize intelligence????
