About the Book

Teaching With Bravery is a deeply visionary book with direct, alive expression about teaching as a method of inner as well as social transformation.  McLellan joins diverse predecessors like Parker Palmer, bell hooks, and Arthur Zajonc in profound trust in the inner potential of every human being, the daring possibilities of the classroom, and the urgency of authentic teaching from within.  His book is accessible and fresh, his message transformative.  Recommended for teachers of any level, any subject.”
