About the Author
John Holt (1927-1985), one of this country's leading educational and social critics, was the author of ten influential books which have been translated into fourteen languages. Known both as a passionate reformer and as "the gentle voice of reason" (Life magazine), John Holt offers insights into the nature of learning that are more relevant today than ever before.
Pat Farenga, writer and president of Holt Associates, lectures all over the country and is the father of three home-schooled daughters.

It wasn’t that I necessarily disagreed with any of the content but I just didn’t find it inspirational or informative.
Much of the content in the book consists of notes sent into the homeschooling magazine Growing Without School, which was run by both men, from parent readers. While I can appreciate what they were trying to do in providing a variety of voices to illustrate their points, it kind of felt like I was just sifting through notes.
If you are looking to be inspired and informed on your homeschooling journey, I would skip this book, but I remain a fan of both men and their work and I encourage you to perk up when their other writings cross your virtual desk.
