John¿s story accurately portrays countless problems in the academic world but also ways to overcome the deficits by the system. While taking a nonbiased approach and using his own personal experience, and strong and researched statistics, Corcoran easily represents the hardships of illiteracy and the shortcomings of the educational system. Truly, it is a never-ending battle that can only be won if 100% of illiterates have 100% determination to overcome their tricky situation and it also takes 100% of literates to help fight this battle. John Corcoran and the others who have struggled and triumphed each had enough determination to win proves that those have the 100% determination join the population of literates. Just as Neil Armstrong said ¿this is one small step for man, one huge leap for man kind,¿ as he took the first steps on the moon, John Corcoran has taken many small steps as an illiterate in order to take the huge leap into the literate world. I definately recommend this book to audiences of all ages. When I finished this book I had a different outlook on the struggling students in today's academic society.
