Promotional Information

Live All You Can is so engaging I read it in two sittings. This book is by the far the most comprehensive record of Alexander Joy Cartwright's life yet available. -- Robert Hamblin, author of Win or Win: A Season with Ron Shumate Jay Martin has given us a John Dewey with a passion for education and a passion for democracy, a man with an open spirit not only for America but also for the changes that swept China and Russia in the earliest decades of the twentieth century; a man who avoided academic inflation, grandstanding, and oratorical excess; a man with a passion above all for plainness and decency, the Harry Truman of American thinkers. Not only Dewey's thought but his life was democratic, as Jay Martin shows in this fine new psychologically revealing biography. A splendid achievement. -- Robert D. Richardson, Author of Henry Thoreau: A Life of the Mind
