I don't remember where or why I got this book since I read another copy back in January!

Teaching has got to be one of the hardest jobs around, and I admire anyone brave enough to make a career of it. Mr. McCourt writes very honestly about his feelings of inadequacy, constantly wondering how to get a handle on the job and expecting to be fired for being a fraud. His methods were unusual, but he was able to connect with kids and get their attention.

The writing flows, sometimes almost in a stream of consciousness style, as Mr. McCourt relates incidents, anecdotes and thoughts and feelings. I read this book in two days, something I've not done with a book in a long time. Partly because I had some time what with our office being closed due to an ice storm, but mostly because the writing and the narration just pulled me in and I became unaware of time passing. The end came all too soon.

Thank you for sending this book to me for the Non-Fiction sweeps.
The fact that you have enjoyed it so much makes it extra-special; and of course, I love biographies!
Thank you, you have been brilliant! :)

Thank you for the book. I just read this one last year and enjoyed it very much. So I will probably find a new home for this copy soon.
