Editorial Reviews

Review

"Fried has judiciously selected 24 essays written over a 40-year period. The approach provides both a coherence and a context for Sarason's wide-ranging intellect and results in a rich and deep appreciation of one of the most influential minds in modern psychology." Contemporary Psychology "What does it take for the constituents of education--teachers, students, parents, administrators, and, above all, the culture of the school--to work together synergistically? To find out, read this distillation of Seymour Sarason's fifty years of reflections--always challenging, often wise." --Howard Gardner, author of Good Work: When Excellence and Ethics Meet "Every time I'm getting too cocky, and think I've got 'the answer,' I read and reread Sarason. He pricks my conscience, but in such a delightful way that I go back for more. He goads me into thinking deeper, and being a bit more honest with myself. I find myself always wanting to argue back, wiggle out a bit, build a roadblock to his devastating logic. Of course, that's what Sarason's after--and it works. This collection puts together most of my favorites and it invites a new generation of readers to become skeptical idealists, in the best and most necessary sense of that phrase." --Deborah Meier, author of The Power of Their Ideas: Lessons for America from a Small School in Harlem "The Skeptical Visionary is an indispensable guide to understanding one of the most thoughtful education thinkers of the 20th century--a must-read for practitioners and policymakers alike. Fried's introductory essay provides a concise and illuminating framework for viewing the work of Sarason. This work is an invaluable contribution to the literature of school reform." --Tony Wagner, Co-Director, Change Leadership Group, Harvard University, Graduate School of Education, and author of Making the Grade: Reinventing America's Schools
