Book summary

The impact that one of this century's most creative educators had on nearly 4 million girls and boys is chronicled here. For over 75 years up to this present day, Hahn's schools have enrolled students world-wide including such notables as England's Prince Charles and Prince Philip. Though it is his famous Outward Bound program that has received such international recognition, Hahn's tenets of teaching formulated so many years ago still are proving valid today. Surviving in the wilderness and surviving in a complex society requires similar basic character traits. The author, himself a Hahn's school alumnus, presents the life of his subject in an intriguing manner. The book will hopefully shed more light on a man about whom even many of his current students know so little. And Mr. Flavin can be even more illuminating via a telephone interview. His observations are insightful, witty and poignant in recalling the life of Kurt Hahn. [via]
