Selected letters of John Holt. Holt findings and making his 'life worth living and work worth doing' and those that in some way look at the relation between struggling for an individual life worth living and a collective one, at what it means to see one's own life's work in terms of the larger world. Holt had an interest in schools, coming to understand what was wrong with schools, struggling to fix those wrongs, and finally realizing that some of the wrongs could not be fixed and that something entirely different was necessary.
