    1. The first half of the book was both interesting and relevant. If it had stopped there, I could have given it at least four stars, if not five. Escelante's teaching methods are often relevant(with sound tactics that can help to instruct a neophyte) though sometimes controversial. From a biographical point of view it was certainly informative. The second half seemed to drag on and felt almost pointless. Read parts 1 and 2 without 3 (I think that was the cutoff) and you'll be good to go.


    2. If you are a teacher you should have read this book. If not READ IT!! Against all odds Excalante takes a band of Hispanic students from LA that were cast offs and creates a math kings and queens Very insirational!!!
