I learned about this book when I heard Eric Liu speak at a conference in October 2006. He spoke of some of the people he writes about, and his talk was so moving that I bought a copy right then and there. His stories of individual teachers are organized around 5 themes or characteristics that make for good teaching. Also, he finds teaching in some unexpected places - these are not all K-12 teachers and college professors. Very inspiring read.
