Then, we must notice that most of these solutions (as the book's title suggests) are related to education, one of the most important aspects of life. Education "touches" and influences us and the other human beings all the time. Parents educate their children, teachers educate their students and all of us should perpetually educate ourselves and the persons close to us.
"Teach for life" is a very complex book, which refers to many subjects: general education, education in school (and some examples are related to the author's main domain: Mathematics), proposed changes in the way we see and understand life (especially regarding the relations with others, which should be filled with love and understanding, these two components being parts of the unity paradigm).
All the theories and opinions are well sustained by arguments and, maybe more important, by examples (some of them are inspired from the author's direct experience... the autobiographic stories bring charmful colors to the book, because the author had a sinuous life, filled with exciting and interesting experiences).
Taking into account the things written above, I strongly encourage people to read "Teach for life", by Irie Glajar (please notice the two key-words in the title: teach & life).
As a conclusion, the author tackles some of the most important and hardest problems in the present world and proposes solutions to them. The thoughts expressed and the given examples are very inspiring and are inciting us to be more interested in the fundamental aspects of life: education, behavior, living among others.
