Loved the perspective of this inspirational educator. This is a must read for those wanting a student centered class. I'd love to see this concept adapted and applied in a secondary setting.

Informative book, but choppy, second-rate narrator
Thought I could multitask and get the information from the audiobook, but the narration was so distracting that I had to switch back to reading.
The narrator has no flow and seems often not able to judge the rhythm and cadence of the authors sentences. Often it reminded me of the syntax a young student learning to read affects - just choppily stringing together words with no comprehension.
Perhaps this is just personal annoyance, but if you think something like that might bug you during the 6 hours of listening, I would recommend just reading the book yourself.
