Reviews

"Esquith is a modern-day Thoreau, preaching the value of good work, honest self-reflection and the courage to go one's own way." -Newsday "Half-memoir, half 'Chicken Soup for the Teacher's Soul.' . . . Esquith's methods are not complicated, terendy, or political. . . . The perfect spokesman for the 'pick yourself up by the bootstraps' crowd." -The New York Sun "Freethinking, demanding, encouraging." -Kirkus Reviews "Passionate and inspiring...With anecdotes that are alternately amusing and disheartening, Esquith details the joys and frustrations of teaching and offers valuable insights to parents and teachers alike." -Booklist
