John Holt was a genius at times. I really like this book and it is one that is worthy of re-reading.

I remember my mother reading this when I was a child. She referenced it often... and now I do the same. Thirty years after it was first published, this seminal work is still worth reading and then reading again. John Holt is the grand-daddy of pop-psych educational writing. Don't let the pop-psych term put you off, however. This thought provoking work will give you more understanding into your child(ren) than ten years worth of subscriptions to the modern parenting magazines.
