really liked it

The anecdotes alone are worth the read, but there is a lot of great advice in getting kids to be more accountable, etc. He definitely goes far beyond what I would expect from even the best teachers out in the world today (making baked goods for his students 52 school days in a row??? I would never ask that of a teacher!), but clearly he felt motivated to do it and believed it would pay dividends...
