More of the Same - And that is a Good Thing!

McCourt has a very consistent writing style with a very appealing, and revealing style.

I listened to the Audio Book as McCourt read it himself. I highly recommend that. There are very strong meanings and reinforced patterns to be gained by listening to his lilting Irish Brogue.

McCourt writes as he thinks, and in doing so his book is both biographical and very psychologically revealing. Sure it gives insight to the teacher. But it really shows us ourselves. Self-doubt, pride, arrogance, mistakes, warts and all it is there. McCourt has found the avenue to meet the self-doubting scared little child in all of us. His experiences recounted in the book with regard to group therapy come full circle as we sit with him in group and hear him share what we all are experiencing.

McCourt fans will not be disappointed.

This should be required reading, or listening for all teachers as well as students, or former students.

Hits the mark!
