I loved "Angela's Ashes" but was less excited by "'Tis." This memoir, dealing exclusively with Irish-American teacher/writer Frank McCourt's lifetime career in the NYC High School public education system is much more compelling. McCourt allows himself to drift in and out of his experiences, sometimes waxing poetic, sometimes being brutally honest. I was able to capture again the essence of that vulnerable but extremely clever little boy we first met in "Angela's Ashes." A remarkable man. A remarkable life.

Found it was very repiticious.I did keep reading thought it might get more interesting.Not. I did like Angelas |Ashes. It did bother me how anyone could let their children live like that.

This is version for early readers not the complete version. I wanted the complete version and this was not clear from its online depiction.

All his books bring you within his life and pulls at your heart strings. it makes you realize that people do go through hardships and are able to live to laugh about it. He jokes about his life, himself and the people around him. This book was no exception, he writes with lightheartedness even with all he has been through and know that writing about his life must have been therapeutic. Thanks to Frank McCort for hours of entertaining reading - have read all three of his books with gusto!

Format: Paperback
the approach of this teacher is very inspiring .humor ,vocabulary, diversity, heart, love for his profession. the audiobook i was listening brought him even closer to my heart.as an emigrant to the new world he intensified my feelings of liking to leave in the international , universal atmosphere of nord american highschool, which i am not familiar with.my son will start highschool soon in canada, so we are on the learning curve. i will send to the teacher man my pink loving thoughts, wherever he might be...god be with you mr mccourt.

I ordered this book, thinking I would be able to settle down with a cup of tea and have a good, solid read from one of my favorite authors. When I received it, it contained only 68 pages and I thought "That's weird!?" On further exploration of the book, I realized it was RE-TOLD and edited by some people quite apart from Frank McCourt. The editing was done for Level 4 students of English as a Foreign Language. The product description mentioned none of this. In fact, the description was written as if THIS was the actual book Frank McCourt had written, not some "Coles Notes" version of the same. Thankfully, I am a teacher of such students, so I suppose I can pawn this "leaflet" off on them because there are exercises relating to the text in the back of the book. But needless to say, I was very diappointed and my cup of tea is stone cold.

Format: Audio CD
McCourt has a very consistent writing style with a very appealing, and revealing style.

I listened to the Audio Book as McCourt read it himself. I highly recommend that. There are very strong meanings and reinforced patterns to be gained by listening to his lilting Irish Brogue.

McCourt writes as he thinks, and in doing so his book is both biographical and very psychologically revealing. Sure it gives insight to the teacher. But it really shows us ourselves. Self-doubt, pride, arrogance, mistakes, warts and all it is there. McCourt has found the avenue to meet the self-doubting scared little child in all of us. His experiences recounted in the book with regard to group therapy come full circle as we sit with him in group and hear him share what we all are experiencing.

McCourt fans will not be disappointed.

This should be required reading, or listening for all teachers as well as students, or former students.

Hits the mark!
