Focusing on the mind and its ability to seek answers to unknown or unanswered questions, this book's theory of educating provides the foundation for using V diagrams by students, educators, researchers, and parents. Teachers make lesson plans using V diagrams and concept maps and become expert coaches in guiding student performances. Students learn to enhance their knowledge by changing from question-answerers to question-askers. Parents share the learning experience with their children and the childrens' teachers and administrators.

They then proceed to define and explain the use and value of Venn Diagrams as utilized in an eight-year Exploring Minds Project at Tennessee State University. Educators interested in developing the critical thinking skills of students in courses from math to social studies will find these results useful." Choice
