Required reading!

My dream has come true: My book, Our School, is required reading for a college class, Stephen Hicks’ Philosophical Foundations of Education seminar at Rockford College. OK, it’s a graduate seminar, not a 500-student lecture class, but it’s a start. Persuading people, one by one, to read the book is a lot of work. Mass coercion is the way to go!

    Now if only the teacher’s union would buy as many of your book as they bought of Hillary’s.
    Now enjoy a week’s honeymoon, then get the sequel going.
    You might also make Allison start on
    “My Mother, The Author”.

  2. Congratulations!

    One of these days I’m going to have to get off my duff and pick up where I left off on my own book….

  3. Wow – 25% of their class grade is for doing a review of your book! You should make sure to get the prof. to send them to you. 🙂



  4. Congratulations!! I think the way that you have marketed your book is absolutely inspiring.

  5. Wonder of wonders, it’s an ed course. Stephen Hicks is obviously a trouble-maker.

  6. ElizabethBennet says:

    Actually, Stephen Hicks is a professional philosopher of the libertarian persuasion. He seems to be teaching this as a sort of interdisciplinary course in the ed. school.

    But nonetheless, very cool.
