This has to be the funniest book I've read about teachers. I'm a teacher and I found myself laughing outloud over these stories. And it started on page nine! Although Robert taught in a non-traditional private school, I could easily relate to some of his stories. Plus the fact that I moved from New York to good old Santa Fe, just like he did, brought back memories. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It's a keeper!

This book has great potential, but it is just in too poor taste for my liking. Both I and my wife are teachers, so we can identify with this type of story "from the teachers' lounge," but it's possible to write humor without being so potty-mouth about it. I'm sure a lot of people would like it.
