“Holt has what so many writers on education lack-an easy and readable style. [It] is a splendid book about fifty years ahead of its time.”–A. S. Neill, Author of Summerhill
About the Author
John Holt (1923-1985) writer, teacher, lecturer, and amateur musician, wrote ten books, including What Do I Do Monday?, How Children Learn, and How Children Fail. His work has been translated into fourteen languages and has become standards in the field of education. For years a leading figure in school reform, John Holt became increasingly interested in how children learn outside of school. The magazine he founded, Growing Without Schooling, continues to reflect his philosophy.
