It was not very engaging, and mostly about his struggle with deep depression. I was hoping to get more out of it for my own journey. I could not relate because I don't suffer from depression.

VOCATION OF TEACHING
I am a university professor with about 25 years of teaching experience. This is a great book for reflection on the calling to higher education and on career development. It provides a lot of structure to assist you in thinking about what we do and how it affects us and those we teach.

A Great Read!
Palmer draws upon his life experience as well as the quality time he spends with others to assist the reader in assessing and perhaps changing his choice of vocation. I was encouraged and blessed by what he had to say. I will read it again and recommend this book to all who are not sure about what to do with their lives.
