    Contemporary, powerful, a MUST for those interested in education

    This book is a classic. So concise and so powerful, it applies perfectly to the ongoing debate on progressive vs. traditional schooling. His points of view and arguments are convincing, offering us educators a good chance to rethink what our practice is all about, instead of just going with the flow and teaching the way we were taught. His arguments, after being criticized for his progressive position, are not as radical, extremely rational and well put.
    It is far from being boring; this tiny book carries so much in it, you can easily read it quicker than you'd read your morning newspaper.

    If you have trouble sleeping, read this book.

    I had to read this book for a college course. I'm sure that John Dewey is trying to say something, I'm sure it also makes sense...just not to me. Reading this book is like watching paint dry. It's dry and I get the feeling like he's using million dollar words just to give you bang for your buck. If it were not for class I would never have brought this. The book is less than 100 pgs. and I've been reading it for three weeks. I can read a novel in a day. Educational, maybe...boring without a doubt. Confusing and dry (again).
