Jane Tompkins memoir shows how her education shaped her in the mold of a high achiever who could read five languages but had little knowledge of herself. As she slowly awakens to the needs of her body, heart, and spirit, she discards the conventions of classroom teaching and learns what her students lives are like.

A painful and exhilarating story of spiritual awakening, Tompkins book critiques our educational system while also paying tribute to it.
