    I enjoyed this book overall and gained from it what I was looking for -- detailed application ideas for Holt's approach to education. I'm glad this wasn't the first book of Holt's I read, and I probably wouldn't recommend it to others to read first, either. Much of it can get tedious with the detailed descriptions he provides of specific ideas, but the detail is good because it gives an immersive understanding of what exactly Holt envisions, precisely what changes he might make and what I enjoyed this book overall and gained from it what I was looking for -- detailed application ideas for Holt's approach to education.

Many thoughts could be applied at home as well. Throughout the book are also many insightful, thought-provoking statements, which I've come to expect from Holt. I don't agree with everything I read, but there's a lot that's good. I definitely gained a better understanding, and I appreciate Holt's thoughtful consideration of what children really need from parents and teachers.

    Another great John Holt book, empowering one to see how we can help our children learn, without sending them to school.

    Some good thoughts that I recorded but nothing earth shattering. I got about halfway through it but I kept getting distracted with other books and the 4th time I had to renew it at the library, I just didn't. Maybe I would have gleaned more from it, and therefore enjoyed it enough to finish if I didn't already agree with so many of his ideas.

    John's bitterness with public education was on display when last he passed through Hamilton. Understand he went finally into home schooling. Daughter-in-law likes him, dropped out of teaching when NCL Behind left her teaching to the test and gasping. Saddest of men: teachers with ideas for improvement powerless to implement them.

    This is a very important book with much to ponder and digest. All of John's books are lovely and full of true respect for children. I have read it several times and it always inspires me. This is one of his most accessible books - easy to take in and practical. I like all of his books, but this one and, "Instead of Education", are my two favorites.

    Another decent, humane and edifying book from the late John Holt, whose voice is badly needed in today's educational debates.

    Some good useful tips. Dont get distracted by the dated technology. The advice is still good.
