"Through inspiring examples and luminous prose, Eric Liu reminds us that we have the capacity to be both teachers and students throughout our lives. This book distills the essence of learning and offers the prospect of self -discovery to all who listen to its GUIDING LIGHTS.
“Reading this book, I was reminded once again that there is no higher calling than teaching, that each of us is capable of fulfilling that calling every day of our lives, and that when we are not the teacher we are the student. Eric Liu brings us back to the first lesson of civilization: Life is reciprocity.”
"Rich with the kind of insight that can only be earned through beautiful storytelling. This is unique journalism, brave in its willingness to be intimate. Eric Liu is a writer with chops and a writer who cares."
