I liked Esquith's other book better (Teach Like Your Hair's on Fire.) This one was a little more ranting. But here's the thing...teachers like Esquith deserve to write a book like this. It was probably therapeutic to put all his horror stories out there. I think most teachers just have to swallow a whole lot of nonsense like this, & it had to feel good to give "his side of the story." He still had tons of great ideas. He spells out his economic system--the best I've ever seen & one I definitely will use (if I teach students old enough.)

I've already checked out Esquith's last book, "Light Their Fires." What an inspiration to the teaching profession!
