KIRKUS REVIEW

In spite of the depressing statistics in the newspapers, there are still those who find teaching a stimulating and inspiring experience -- Professor Highet's book is for them.. A little less classical in stress than the Barzun book of 1945, here with wisdom and tolerance is a discussion of the rewards of teaching and the qualities of a teacher -- knowing his subject, continuing to learn it, liking his pupils and knowing them. Preparation, communication, classwork are the methods; there is the stimuli of competition and tradition, and the precepts of the great teachers of the past. A breath of fresh air.
