it was amazing

About 30 brief essays on topics ranging from Engaged Pedagogy to Spirituality to Conflict. This book, however, does not lend itself to mass consumption. Right off the bat, Hooks drops you into the world of imperialist white supremacist capitalist patriarchy, and I suspect those without a certain amount of preparation will be put off by it. Also, Hooks writes from the perspective of a college professor, so the lower the grade level, the less this may resonate, with the exception of Hooks' chapter on writing a children's book. This is great for people looking for a heavy dose of critical perspective. For platitudes about inspiration and life lessons, look elsewhere.
