    1. The broccoli of Waldorf pedagogy. I know it’s good for me, but do I have to? I am still salty about the bone parts rn so, it loses one star.

    2. This book is so interesting. There are chapters that I blazed through, easily reading, understanding and agreeing with the content. There were chapters that I got incredibly angry at (some of which I'm still at odds with LOL). This is not a book to passively read. It's a book to study (preferably with others) and then experiment with. It's a work book - a 'book in progress'. A book to reread in small portions. Don't dismiss its contents without testing them out. Some things in here are not for m [...]

    3. Still working on this one. The Physics teacher at my school and I have had some interesting discussions about Steiner's views contained in this book as they relate to philosophy, science, and human development. Whether you're an anthroposophist or not, they're certainly interesting ideas. Take what you will from them, I say.To be continued.

    4. Required read in my 2nd year Waldorf Teacher Training course. Essential Steiner. For some reason, I know I wrote reports on each chapter of this book (over 10 yrs. ago) but I can't remember anything specific. I wasn't as awed by Steiner when I read this or something.

    5. Good grief, I had to read this for teacher training. The birkenstock crowd treated this book like the HolyGrail/Bible/ of life. Get a grip! It provides some interesting insights into human development, but I could do without the holy of holies drama!
