Very much enjoyed this book about a possibly great teacher and definitely a flawed man. I didn’t read about the author until after I finished the book (the con of reading electronically, no cover to read). But once I read about Mr. Greenstone, I wondered how much of this may be true. It also reminded me of something I realized as a teacher and never realized as a student. Every teacher has their own story. They have lives beyond the classroom. I think as students, we don’t immediately realize this. This will go on my reading list for my education students at the university.
