I'm going to steer away from books that grew out of blogs for a while. I'd prefer a longer, more developed argument to a string of brief musings.
I also feel that the book didn't get into the real shit at all. It mostly deals with parenting toddlers and doesn't deal at all with trying to be anti-authoritarian while being the authority that your children need. Dealing with the meat grinder from 'the Wall' that is public school is also totally absent. Trying to be active in a movement while working and still have enough time for your kids was completely not here, because all the authors are either stay at home dads who have taken vows of poverty or else they work for NGOs or whatever or they are superstars like Cory Doctorow (probably the least interesting writing in here) or Jeff Chang or Raj Patel.
Still, there was plenty in here to think about.
