This book is interesting and thought-provoking. I read it to learn more about home educating, and came away less keen on the idea of autonomous learning. Nothing against the author or her family, but I found it all a bit too self-righteous, especially on matters such as vaccinating and visiting the doctor (or not, as the case was) when your child is bitten by a dog. The book itself can be a bit hard to follow as it is partially separated into seasons, partially based on the author's past, and also has chapters written by the author's family.

All in all, this was a book that definitely made me think more about the pros and cons of home educating.
