    "Satisfying and invigorating polemic"

    A paean to the teaching profession, less self-indulgent (and more bracing) than most of its competitors in the genre. It's well-written, though a few of the poems Mali uses to introduce his chapters do come close to flinch-worthiness.

    The 2hr-plus length was "just long enough" for me -- I listened to the book during a single day's there-and-back-again commute.

    Adam Verner's reading is excellent; he's obviously read the book in advance (I wish they all would!) and puts the emphasis and the humor in the right places. He sounds like he believes what he's saying, and that's what matters for this type of book.

    Well worth the price for anyone interested in teaching as a profession, or anyone who enjoys books about the process of coming to terms with a demanding career.
