    No shocking insights this time; still quite interesting.

    This book won't shock and intrique like his other books, but if you are interested in his ideas, this book will shed some light on where they came from.

    A must to understand Quinn's work

    For all lovers of Ishmael, this is necessary. Having studied Quinn, I attest that a full understanding of his arguments cannot be obtained without examining who he is as an individual. Highly recommended for all who read his other works.

    More than a biography- a starting place...

    This is an intriguing book because it is about a terribly intriguing man. It would be crucial to and useful for educators and men and women of religion. These people would need to remember, however, that challenging something is not a bad thing and it is not for the sake of an argument. It is for the sake of betterment. Quinn shows in the book that he has been on both sides of religion and education. He wants to use these experiences for positive change. Through this book, he wants to benefit the reader and push towards this change. It is important that the change is not forwards or backwards, necessarily- but it wants a change in society to what works.
