I didn't finish this book. There were quite a few things I could relate to in this book, but the topics seemed to be more than what I would say was a normal High School classroom. Of course I never ... Read full review

Don't read this book hoping to find cheery essays about teaching. This book was a misery to read. The essays consist of cruel jabs at the author's fellow teachers, his students, and administrators ... Read full review
