A beautiful book of the author's personal journey of discovery of the alternatives to what we normally call 'education'. Not as exhaustive and thorough as Robin Grille's 'Parenting for a Peaceful World', but for me its true value lies in its authenticity. She has lived, and still lives it.

This really could be a great addition to the parenting literature, but I am finding it lacking in any real and meaningful implications.
