it was ok

I don't think I was in the right frame of mind to read this book. The essays are all heartfelt and some are interesting and well-written. But I found myself glazing over the anguished descriptions of wanting to be liked, and looking for some bullet-pointed classroom management tips.

If the title resonates and you want to read something that delivers on its promise, read this blog instead (http://roomd2.blogspot.com/), starting at the beginning.
