I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn more about the issues facing our public schools.
I did not realize the effect Race to the Top was having on changing our public schools. I also did not realize how Democrats have been working to address the issues with public schools.

I believe when all the smoke clears the deciding factor in education is our Teachers. There is a lot of smoke to clear out of the way - unions, contracts, laws, etc. but the core way to make a change is to get the best teacher possible in front of our students and let them teach. I hope we can do this within our existing framework of public schools.
This book gave me insight into the Pope that I did not have before. I really enjoyed learning more about him as a person!
I enjoy history so this book was for me. But it does have a lot of detail and seems to come from a British point of view. But overall worth the price of admission if you enjoy history.
I found this fascinating! Hearing history in people's own words and the emotion associated to them was very rewarding.
LISTEN TO THIS!
I would probably have to read it multiple times to gain a full understanding. But I liked it because I had no idea Pope John Paul II had written any poems!
I am amazed by the amount of suffering North Koreans have endured for so long. The resilience of mankind is equally amazing. The author brought me down to personal level of understanding by following people and not listing facts or reporting on occurrences. I could not recommend the book highly enough. Well worth the time and cost!
