MEDIA REVIEWS
Almost every educator knows that Benjamin Bloom was the author of the Taxonomy of Educational Objectives. Most know that he was responsible for the development of mastery learning. There are many sources of information about Ben Bloom, the professional educator. Tom Guskey has done a wonderful job of assembling a set of stories that help us understand the human dimension of this remarkable thinker and truly appreciate Ben Bloom, the man. -- Lorin W. Anderson, Carolina Distinguished Professor Emeritus, University of South Carolina
This book is an important reminder to today's scholars and researchers that many current ideas are not new. Guskey has assembled an wonderful array of stories portraying Bloom the scholar and Bloom the man that remind us of his contributions to many of the current lines of research today. The combination of personal and professional stories in Guskey's volume remind us what a truly remarkable man Benjamin Bloom was. -- Judith Monsaas, Executive Director of Assessment and Evaluation and Professor of Education, Office of Educator Preparation, Innovation and Research,The Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia
"I really enjoyed Benjamin S. Bloom: Portraits of an Educator. This book has gotten me more interested in Dr. Bloom and, in fact, I purchased three more books that were written by him, simply due to your book. I have a full-time job and am pursuing a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction, and though I am not a traditional college age student, I am more interested in learning about education now. Thanks so much for the incredible book and it was a delight to learn more about the man behind Bloom's Taxonomy. Far more than I ever knew about Benjamin Bloom and I will be reading even more in the months to come simply due to your book. Thank you!" -- Bob Jennings
