Editorial Reviews

Review

"Holt is a class with Piaget."
New York Review of Books

"By his vision of what can be done in education, he makes us think in new ways about what is being done."
The Wall Street Journal

"One of the most profoundly moving books I've ever read, the truest account of how I remember my best learning experiences as a child and an adult."
Cory Doctorow, author of Walkaway and Little Brother

"The gentle voice of reason."
Life magazine

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.
