Innovative educator Ramsey Musallam highlights the books that drive him - like On the Road (that pun is free of charge). He wanders Into the Wild with Jon Krakauer and considers The Perks of Being a Wallflower with Steven Chbosky. And unlike most of us, he has even made it all the way through David Foster Wallace's Infinite Jest!

Ramsey Musallam teaches science at Sonoma Academy in Santa Rosa and is a host of the internet TV series The Infinite Thinking Machine. A leading thinker of the flipped classroom movement and a proponent of the potential of technology to inspire students, his insightful TED talk, "Three Rules to Spark Learning," is a favorite of educators looking to break the mold.

Ramsey Musallam's eight books:

  1. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Steven Chbosky
  2. Beloved by Toni Morrison
  3. Letters to a Young Poet by Rainer Maria Rilke
  4. Veronika Decides to Die by Paulo Coelho
  5. Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer
  6. Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace
  7. On the Road by Jack Kerouac
