Show Excerpt to show why a teacher in the nineteenth century is to preach a lower standard than one in the first.

However, I won't say that the Reviewers have not a certain plausible ground for their dicta. For a short time after a boy has taken up such a life as Arnold would have urged upon him, he has a hard time of it. He finds his judgment often at fault, his body and intellect running away with him into all sorts of pitfalls, and himself coming down with a crash. The more seriously he buckles to his work the oftener these mischances seem to happen; and in the dust of his tumbles and struggles, unless he is a very extraordinary boy, he may often be too severe on his comrades, may think he sees evil in things innocent, may give offence when he never meant it. At this stage of his career, I take it, our Reviewer comes across him, and, not looking below the surface (as a Reviewer ought to do), at once sets the poor boy down for a prig and a Pharisee, when in all likelihood he is one of the humblest and truest and

I am afraid that my review is not good. I was extremely upset and disappointed in this book purchase. I had expected a higher quality from Barnes and Noble. The book was printed without ony pictures on poor quality paper and the backing looked cheap, raw, and looked as if it wouldn't last one reading. The contrast between the print and the white paper made it look unpleasant, dull and difficult to read. My 11year old grandson is an avid reader but he didn't even pick up the book to begin. the cover was plain and not inviting. Because I had it sent to my grandson in another city it took a while before I could visit him and see the book. I am planning to return the book as my grandson has saved the packing slip. I only need to return to his home in Dallas for me to collect the book and papers and send it back. If you have any other questions or comments I am very willing to be available jujujon please contact me by email or phone which I will give if I can send this review directly to B & N and not over a large website. Thanks,
