Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0226065820, Paperback)
This critically acclaimed collection is both a passionate celebration
of teaching as a vocation and an argument for rhetoric as the center of
liberal education. While Booth provides an eloquent personal account
of the pleasures of teaching, he also vigorously exposes the political
and economic scandals that frustrate even the most dedicated educators.
"[Booth] is unusually adept at addressing a wide variety of
audiences. From deep in the heart of this academic jungle, he shows a
clear eye and a firm step."—Alison Friesinger Hill, New York Times
"A cause for celebration. . . . What an uncommon man is Wayne
Booth. What an uncommon book he has provided for our reflection."
—James Squire, Educational Leadership
"This book stands as a vigorous reminder of the traditional
virtues of the scholar-teacher."—Brian Cox, Times Literary
