Format: Paperback
Robert Nash, an engaging writer, rigorous scholar, passionate, kind, committed teacher and a brilliant mind, delivers a groundbreaking book advocating a new paradigm for scholarly writing.

Nash consistently tackles difficult and controversial topics in education with intelligence, grace, balance and the keen insights of a University Professor with nearly forty years in the classroom and the academy. One of the most talented and insightful educational philosophers of our time, he presents a provocative and powerful case that personal writing really does matter.

Nash has three particular audiences for this book. Degree-seeking undergraduate and graduate students particularly those from underrepresented groups, graduate students in schools of education and other professional schools who are considering writing theses and dissertations using the personal narrative methodology, and faculty, researchers, and scholars in schools of education, and in other professional schools. The book is useful to anyone who desires to write truthfully and compellingly.

Nash offers ten tentative guidelines for writing narratives, offers eight examples and presents useful and insightful thoughts about the particulars of the genre. Nash offers recommend reading lists and a thorough bibliography helpful to the narrative writer.

Nash has a knack for writing books offering prescient ideas: Faith, Hype and Clarity: Teaching About Religion In America's Schools and Colleges, Religious Pluralism in the Academy: Opening the Dialogue, Real World Ethics: Frameworks for Educators and Human Services Professionals and Answering the Virtuecrats: A Moral Conversation on Character Education. Not surprisingly he does it once more here.

This was a required reading for a writing class. I don't think I would read it voluntarily. It is easy enough to read but the pertinent information is hard to pick out without digesting all of it, and a lot of it I could do without.
