If you teach anything creative- think about why you teach it. To give job skills? To meet state goals? Those are both fine reasons. But Koch is teaching in a nursing home to profoundly affect how people look at their inner landscape. Do you teach to empower and to change lives? Would you like to think that's what you do? I would read this not as a how-to but a why-to.
I'm glad to say that this edition contains the same material that was in the first. Why the title was changed, I am unsure. The new title leaves me cold; the old one was more relevant to the content of the book, and it has been maintained on all but the new title page. Anybody who knows anything about the lives of people who are remembering what cool stuff they did and never told will also wonder about the current cover of the book. (I have used 60s jargon for a reason here, people. Have you been to a gathering of 60s radicals lately? Pretty tame.)
