The author, David Guterson, writes from a unique perspective. He is not only a homeschooling dad, but a teacher at a public high school! This man has a foot in both worlds, and a love for the children in both worlds. While reading this book, I couldn't help but think of all of our family and friends in the education industry. In fact, I know I have left several comments over The Mimmenblog encouraging our friend George to read this book (George is a also a high school teacher who homeschools his children).
This book is a great read, EVEN if you are not interested in homeschooling. Guterson will open your eyes to the benefits of homeschooling, and the reasons why our country will only remain truly free if parents continue to have the right to educate their own children.
Mr. Guterson is NOT a Christian (from what I can tell!), and the book has a slight new-age feel to it, but Guterson's love for chlidren and his desire for children to be connected with their fathers will bless your soul.
If you read it, let me know how you like it!
