message 1: by Lisa (new) - added it

Lisa Vegan I haven't read by this but I have friends who are educators who swear by this theory, and whenever it's been described to me, it makes perfect sense to me. I've had this on my to-read list since way before Goodreads.

message 2: by P. (new)

P. This is quite interesting, and from the table of contents very thorough. If the ideas take root perhaps they can halt the tidal wave of entitlement that crashes over us daily, which seems to me the direct result of the whole 'here's a reward for just being you' method of management. We all live with the results and it does wear. [smiley face]
