I bought Teacher Man yesterday. Too bad I can't get away with reading it during class.

I read the prologue during my plan period today. I don't see how I'm not going to enjoy this book about a public school teacher. The Today show interview was good too. But as a teacher, I'm biased.

same. (only had it for about a year though.)

i don't really like the picture on the cover...and i get the feeling the amazing humor in the first book was mostly based on the funny perceptions of an unjaded child, i just don't want to read about him as an adult. and if he used the same style i don't think it would work for an adult.

anyone agree that the movie completely missed the dark humor of the book? the book made me laughand cry...movie just made me want to commit suicide.

cant judge a book by its cover!

the second one is funny too.

in one part he writes about trying to eat his pie and drink his soda while seeing a movie , and hes hiding them under his coat
and some guy chases him out of the theatre calling him a pervert
hehe
