Excellent Sheep

Ahhhh what a brilliant book! This book is an absolute love-letter to the love of learning, the honing of a person’s sense of self, and the genuine (NOT ‘prestigious’ / hottie) enlightenment that only comes from real learning, real teachers, real passion, and new understanding. Not from gaming test scores, caring about credentials pieces of paper, or the names of places where said knowledge was gained. This book is the epitome of everything I feel about education — real, personal, mind-growing, passion-fueling, education. What a fantastic read. This should be mandatory reading for everyone in their freshman year of high school — a legitimate primer for the season of life they’re about to step into. The heart of this book is the love of curiosity and an ever-expanding mind. I love that.
