    Written in the 1960s, this book is an amazing discussion of the human potential and what the education system could be like by the year 2000. It's incredibly depressing in that education has actually gone further in the opposite direction it should.

    I read the original 1960s version: pretty cool. I'd like to see the revised version.

    George Leonard's Education and Ecstasy was published nearly 40 years ago, but is as relevant today as ever. The day that "learning & joy" are synonymous in students' minds, then we can retire this book. Until then, this classic work stands as a touchstone for the quest to ignite a LOVE of learning in students - and their teachers.

    This would be worthy of rereading! Perhaps all teachers, head masters, and parents should pick this one up again. I remember it being revelatory, but it's been so long~
