Of particular benefit is his concept of the three different categories of education, that of content knowledge, intellectual skill, and enlarged understanding of ideas and values. Each one is essential for a complete education, and each one requires a different type of mode to instruct properly. One cannot teach intellectual skill in the same manner that one teaches content knowledge. This section has revolutionized and dramatically improved my ability to teach high school math and physics, and it is applicable to all disciplines.
I buy these books 5-10 at a time and give them as gifts to fellow teachers. A good companion to this book is Robert Hutchins' The Great Conversation.
