it was amazing

this book was fantastic, but it was entirely in line with my parenting style, and general outlook on society and life, so of course i found it fantastic! i skimmed it, as i already agreed with it almost entirely. tom hodgkinson is funny and smart. i would like to go to his house and hang out with him and his kids. he felt like a modern day john holt with more of a sense of humor and with an emphasis on parenting, but really he was talking about us a society. i'd like to read more of his books.
