By Oliver Van DeMille. An absolute must-read book! This discussion of leadership education accurately exposes the conveyor-belt training systems we currently see in institutional education, instills the vision of what true learning should be, and gives clear guidelines on how to recreate the educational experience of Jefferson and his contemporaries in our own home or classroom, through a combination of mentors and classics. Although philosophically rich and very inspiring, this book also provides practical answers and substantive how-to-really-do-it details that allow the reader’s zeal to flow right into application. Above all, it is a book that will permanently change your concept of what education can and should be. Required reading for every serious parent, teacher, or private school administrator.
