From the Winner of the Grawemeyer Award in Education in 2007

"In the world of education reform, where silver-bullet ideas, ideologies, and intellectual fashion clamor for influence, James Comer's thinking has long been a sea of calm, balanced, and humane wisdom focused on the needs of the whole person. Reading Comer you see the incompleteness of so many other approaches to reform, as well as learn an integrated approach to making schools work. And now, here it all is in a single book. If you want to see how schools can actually work, as opposed to affiliate with a prior belief about how they should work, this is a must read."
Claude Steele,professor, the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University

"The best introduction?professional and personal to the remarkable world of James Comer: physician-educator, par excellence."
Howard Gardner, Hobbs Professor of Cognition and Education, Harvard Graduate School of Education, Cambridge, Massachusetts

"James Comer is a rare constellation among social scientists: a great intellect, a keen analyst, a creative problem-solver and a man of enormous empathy. His writings are required reading for anyone interested in education reform or improving the odds for poor children."
Geoffrey Canada, president and CEO, Harlem Children's Zone
