  • Radical: Fighting to Put Students First

    Story

    Part memoir, part manifesto, Radical is this fearless advocate's incisive, intensely personal call-to-arms. Rhee combines the story of her own extraordinary experience with dozens of compelling examples from schools she's worked in and studied-from students from unspeakable home lives who have thrived in the classroom to teachers whose radical methods have produced unprecedented leaps in achievement. Radical chronicles Rhee's awakening to the potential of every child, her rage at the special interests blocking badly-needed change, and her recognition that it will take a grassroots movement to create outstanding public schools.

    What made the experience of listening to Radical the most enjoyable?

    Ms. Rhee has told an excellent story and has given us all something to seriously think about in education reform.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Book made me very sad for all of the missed opportunities for our educational system. The author has exposed a lot of very one-sided arguments and people not focusing on the students and student achievement.


    Any additional comments?

    Should be mandatory reading for every tax payer in the country!

  • God, No!: Signs You May Already Be an Atheist and Other Magical Tales

    Story

    From the larger, louder half of the world-famous magic duo Penn & Teller comes a scathingly funny reinterpretation of The Ten Commandments. They are The Penn Commandments, and they reveal one outrageous and opinionated atheist’s experience in the world.

    Where does God, No! rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I try to read / listen to at least some non-fiction works every month. Penn Jillette has done a great job of communicating a difficult topic in today's America.


    Any additional comments?

    This book has a great deal of cursing in it so if you are terribly offended by that you probably don't want to listen to the book. Having said that I thought the story was very insightful and funny throughout and I will definitely listen to it again. If there is any doubt in your heart or mind about the existence of God, I highly recommend listening to this book. If there isn't any doubt, maybe you should listen anyway!
