Format: Spiral-bound
This book is fantastic, if you want everyday advice about how a large Godly family carries out the homeschooling process. Instead of educational jargon, arguments on methodology or abstract ideas of idealism, this book delivers a plain and simple how-to manual.

They explain how they teach, what they use, how they chose their books, how the school day runs, how mom handles it all, and how to get the kids independently learning. They give all the details and nitty gritty you would ask a friend, down to the different schedules over more than ten years of homeschooling.

If you are interested in educationese, idealism, abstract wrangling over methodologies, or in depth explanations of the arts of learning and teaching, this book is not for you.

If you want to figure out a practical way to give your children a practical education that will honor God, and the state, and prepare them for whatever they need to know, this book may be for you.

Let me first say that I do not own this book -- I own another book by the Maxwells called "Managers of Their Homes" which is excellent for developing a schedule to keep all aspects of your homelife (including school) running smoothly using all members of the family. The reason I write this review is simply to report that Managers of Their Schools costs just $18 on the Titus 2 website... so don't be fooled by those who want to sell it brand new here for $70+!

Wonderful. There is so much in here. It's a great book to read and re read. I'm a homeschool mother of 6. There is a lot of useful information in this book. A few thing I grabbed and tweaked to fit our school. Scheduling is always the hardest. A lot of bloggers I had tips from that worked real well got it from this book. So I was very interested to read it.
It is so worth reading. I wpiluld recommend it to any homeschooler.

If you are just getting ready to plunge into homeschool, please read this book! There are all kinds of ideas out there on what is the best way to teach at home, so why not consider reading a book by someone that has been homeschooling for over 2 decades!
The Maxwells are almost painfully honest - you will not be bored reading this book. They admit what they think they did wrong, and are generous enough to share this information with us, so that we can learn from their perceived mistakes. They even let their grown kids critique their schooling and give word-for-word quotes of their opinions. Now, that's very brave, in my opinion. Courageous! Humble!
They have good ideas, they explain in detail why they do what they do (after trial and errors) and what works for them. This is a great book to read if just starting, or even pretty far on your way. Don't let the dated cover of this book, and somewhat boring "look" keep you from getting this book. Like they say, "Don't judge a book by its cover!" (I have to admit, the cover is what took me so long to finally order it)

While I don't agree with everything the Maxwell's had to say in this book, I got so much out of it. I loved the fact that they defended home school parents choices, especially those of us who need the structure of a good solid curriculum. Well written, and I took from her experiences what I felt was important for my family's situation.
