Eric EdmundsonTo read one of these short essays is like taking a walk with a genial, generous and intelligent teacher who speaks fluently and kindly. The book probably ought to be considered as a sequence of such walks, designed to bring pleasure and some profit, too, to all, but particularly to young teachers entering the field. What holds the book together is Parini's presence. And it can be quite an appealing one -- he comes off, at least initially, as a soft-spoken, kindly guy who's a pleasure to have around.
