I really did not enjoy this book. The basic premise of the book is that the role of teachers should not focus on teaching their students about the curriculum, but should be about teaching them self-empowerment. To some degree, I think that is a great message. But this book took the idea to the extreme, and did it in a way that made it sound simple. I never really trust a message when there are multiple references to the author's previous work, and when the idea makes it seem like teachers who don't buy into the message are just not great teachers. There is a chance I am being a bit overly critical and unfair to this book, but I did not find it very practical.
