Partial Truths is a book about learning-a book about one educator's experiences learning to teach, to observe, and to make choices. It is an elegantly written portrayal of Glenda Bissex's life in action and of the intertwining of her professional work and personal experiences.

Bissex has explored many aspects of education, searching for where she might make the most difference: as a teacher, a teacher of teachers, a school board member, a researcher, a writer. She seeks a full life beyond as well as through education. Her memoir reveals her passion for the countryside, her experiments as a composer of music, and her lifelong relationship with writing. Partial Truths also collects for the first time some of Glenda Bissex's best essays, including ones that were previously unpublished, that extend the notions of reading, writing, and researching in surprising directions.

Educators, whether beginning teachers or midlife adventurers, will find here the company of an honest and reflective companion. Bissex writes at the end of one of her essays, "We share our meanings with each other in the hope that the meanings of one person's story will help others seek and find the meanings of theirs." She might also have said this about the Partial Truths.
