About the Author
John Holt (1927-1985), one of this country's leading educational and social critics, was the author of ten influential books which have been translated into fourteen languages. Known both as a passionate reformer and as "the gentle voice of reason" (LIFE magazine), John Holt offers insights into the nature of learning that are more relevant today than ever before.
