I have been homeschooling for a number of years now, and nevertheless this book has brought new insights into what I already knew. I am even more convinced that I am doing the right thing.
What advice is given is often questionable, such as suggesting that the best way for new homeschoolers to begin is with a "self-paced" curriculum like ACE--completely ignoring homeschooling options that don't involve buying a capital-C Curriculum. Sometimes it is just ludicrous (a schedule for a first grader that assumes Dad is going to be teaching science and history five evenings a week).
What I found most disappointing in this book was that the writer and his family were almost completely absent from the story. Adding a personal angle, allowing us to hear their own homeschooling story, would certainly have strengthened the writing.
This may be a useful book for someone who needs to be convinced of the benefits of homeschooling (say a father in law), but that's about it.
