    1. I only got through forward, introduction and a couple of chapters. I hate books like this.I agreed with everything I read in this book. That can be OK in a book if it can help with greater integration or something, but this is an example of one of those books that does pulpit-pounding preaching to the choir. It Godwin's Law-s itself in the first few pages and blasts the opposition with turns of phrase and arguments that aren't even that clever.No one could possibly be convinced by this book. It [...]

    2. Clearly and concisely written, economically and spiritually grounded, this is a must read for anyone who supports families' rights to choose and direct their children's education without government interference. Educating one's own children is a fundmental right, and Mr. Richman elegantly explains the principles of this.

    3. Though the author is of a libertarian persuasion, and I do not subscribe to all his ideologies, his views on education resonated with me. He just didn't complain about the problems with public education, he had some valid solutions for fixing those problems.

    4. This book could have been titled, "The libertarian view of education: a short introduction." Gives you an excellent primer on all the arguments, history, and a lot of resources for further reading. Richman does his homework and distills it down to just what you need. His short books for the FFF are fluff-free, packed with excellent information, and written in clear and engaging prose.
