    What struck me most about this book is how many echoes of my own experiences and my eldest daughter's experiences with public school were here. From the English teacher, to the Social Studies teacher, Mr. Tenner, and the blind devotion to conformity I have often seen in my mother (contrasted here as Nolan's father) despite her deep unhappiness with conformity. And although the book is presented in stark black and white, with little gray at all, I have quite literally heard MANY of the circular arguments for doing things a certain way that appear in this book. Literally, it felt like Tod had reached into my memories and ripped pages out of my life. Which then made me realize that my experiences must be far more common than I ever dreamed they could be. Solo Flight preaches to the choir. If you are already a devoted self-learner or unschooler, you may find yourself simply nodding along to much of it. If you are still new to the homeschooling world, you may feel it is a little over the... More > top, yet at the same time, a chord of sympathy will strike within. I don't think that there is a single, thinking, feeling adult in this world who has not heard at least one of the creativity-killing statements spoken by the characters in this book at least once. If you have ever felt a small undercurrent of uncertainty, a question that the world is not quite what it seems, that your early years were wasted within the halls of oppressive, controlling schools then I think you should read this book. That's my two cents...< Less
