Embora o autor padeça de uma certa ingenuidade e crueza intelectuais, como ao forçar um pouco a barra para revelar as origens intelectuais de certas idéias, o livro é devastador. Quem lê um livro desses e não fica com medo e nojo da escola não é uma pessoa normal. O mais interessante do livro são os relatos pessoais do autor, de coisas que ele viveu ao longo da carreira de 30 anos no ensino público e privado e que o permitiu tirar as conclusões devastadoras que ele tirou acerca do caráter exclusivamente instrumental, utilitário, do ensino escolar hodierno.
