One other little note - there seems to have been some kind of publishing problem. In several different spots, the last sentence of the paragraph is missing...not too much of an issue, just a little annoying.
Overall, a fairly easy read and worthwhile.
I hold a gun to your head and demand your wallet. You give it to me. Now, this scenario could be interpreted in two ways: 1) I made you give me your wallet, or 2) You chose to give me your wallet because you preferred that to death.
Choice Theory says that interpretation 2 is correct and 1 is false, and interprets this as some sort of freedom. Ok, fine, if you think that interpretation provides any value. The book proceeds then to belabor that so-called point over the course of several chapters. Yawn.
Somehow, this slides into the use of small groups in the classroom, which I concede is probably a useful idea. You really don't need Choice theory to get there. I skimmed the rest of the book.
