The book begins with his early childhood and the seventeen years he spent as a student that led him on his journey to become a teacher. Completing his last year in the classroom in 2005, he surveyed other teachers. What these teachers had to say was insightful and disturbing. Along with other insights into our current society and culture, the book provides a great deal of food for thought.
