Such a great collection of compliments to many wonderful educators. I only hope that someday I can inspire a fraction of that gratitude in a student of mine. :)

Bir öğretmen olarak,bu kitabın ismini görür görmez okumak istedim.Çeviri kaynaklı mı bilmiyorum ama kitapta duygu eksikti.Açıkçası;ben anlatılan sevgiyi,içtenliği hissedemedim.Her bir gerçek hikayede,o kişinin hayatında iz bırakmış ve hayatına bir şekilde yön vermiş bir ya da birden fazla öğretmen söz konusuydu.Aslında puanım sadece vefa söz konusu olduğu için.Kitabı beğenmedim.

“Great teachers make all the difference in one’s journey to self-realization. I would never have become the writer I am, such as I am, without their incalculable encouragement. So this tribute to the noble, underacknowledged importance of the teaching profession cannot be recommended more heartily.”
— Alex Shoumatoff, editor of DispatchesFromTheVanishingWorld.com and contributor to Vanity Fair and the New Yorker
