This is the second book in my path of learning Montessori method for educating children, but I would suggest it as the first Montessori book to almost everyone. Unlike my first book (which is another gem I highly appreciate and value in its own category), this one is much shorter and includes just a few references to other works; this is basically a book written by a parent for other parents. A very personal book which tells the story of a father who really deeply cared about the education of his children and his amazing discoveries. Trevor Eissler does not shy away from giving accounts of his own childhood in which there were some difficult moments; his sharp analysis of what kind of education leads to those difficulties is at least as valuable as a scientific psychological research for me. Maybe that’s because I’m also about to become a father and I’m also obsessed about the process a child lives throughout his first years.

I also felt like I was having a sincere conversation with a father of three children while reading the book. A conversation not only about raising kids and education for kids but also about the meaning of education. The meaning of being really and intrinsically motivated to do something, the meaning of tackling calculus or trying to learn to play the piano. Not to have the best grades but just because making music or discovering some fundamental truths about this world is simply a lot of fun to begin with.

Eissler's sincere description of his first experience in a Montessori classroom is what really motivated me to go and find a Montessori school to visit. His very alive and enthusiastic description evokes my empathy, it is difficult not to sense the joy of a mind which discovers a very beautiful way and new of doing things, in this case discovering Montessori method for educating children in action. And I think that’s what we need for a start, because once there is enough energy to start us going there are excellent scientific resources such as 'Montessori: The Science Behind the Genius' which provides a lot of background for deep inquiry into the subject.

If you decide to explore Montessori method then let reading this book be your first step. ( )

I don't have any children of my own, yet, but I really enjoyed reading Montessori Madness. Trevor Eissler recounts his experience in the public education system and compares it to his children's in a Montessori school, and I think even the childless can relate. Not all education systems are created equal, and I feel that every parent/child-care provider needs to read this book. ( )

As our public schools struggle with major budgeting shortfalls projected...for 2010 and 2011, it’s clear the traditional system could use an overhaul. Montessori Madness shows how Montessori methods could be the revolution traditional schooling needs.
 
“Montessori Madness” is a real gem. I highly recommend it for anyone interested in a clear, concise introduction to Montessori education. I recommend it even more to those who are seeking a true alternative to traditional education.

Every online purchase of "Montessori Madness!" from the author’s website donates $10 of the purchase price back to a Montessori school.
 
A while ago, Trevor Eissler sent me a copy of his book "Montessori Madness". The cover states that it is a "Parent to Parent Argument for Montessori Education", and as a teacher, I found it to be an exciting review of Montessori theory, and a journey into Montessori education as seen through the eyes of a parent.

One day, riding in the car, my daughter piped up from her car seat in the back, "Is that the jail?"
We were driving by an imposing, small-windowed, fortress-like building.
"No, sweetie, that's the high school," I answered. (15)
One Halloween we took our kids to a party. During the party, the grown-ups called all the children together to pose for a costume contest...Prior to the adults taking over, the kids had no interest in ranking their costumes. (25)
Students in traditional schools are told exactly what to learn, but is that any guarantee they learned it?  It is spelled out precisely which areas they will spend time on every day, but is that any guarantee they will be proficient in those areas? Aren't there a number of traditional school students who have fallen through the cranks and who can't read or calculate, but who have been in reading and math classes for years? (87)
An event far in the future is not reality to a young child.  At no point would a Montessori teacher say, "Trust me, you need to learn this because you'll need it later. (90)
[T]hey begin to venture out into the community more often on various "going-out" excursions, as our local school calls them.  These expeditions are not like the filed trips we used to take.  Here the children to it all.  They decide where they want to go.  The children raise the money.  The children make the phone calls to arrange transportation.  The children organize the supplies needed. (92)
