I borrowed this book from my public library and liked it so much that I purchased it from Powell books online. It is one that even my husband said he was interested in reading (high praise indeed!). I love how this book reviews families with so many different methods of learning. I especially liked the way each family is overviewed by number of children, age, geographic location, favorite and worst advice, and (my favorite) favorite resources and websites. Many different religious and non-religious backgrounds included. Highly recommend for people just in the investigative stage of homeschooling.
