The Unschooling Unmanual

About the book

6" x 9", 112 pages.

Through engaging personal stories and essays, the writers offer inspiration and encouragement for both seasoned and prospective unschoolers.

This 2nd edition includes Jan Hunt's "Ten Tips for New Unschooling Parents".

The book features writing by Jan Hunt, Nanda Van Gestel, Daniel Quinn, John Holt, Rue Kream, Kim Houssenloge, Earl Stevens, and Mary Van Doren. Edited by Jan Hunt and her unschooled son Jason.

"Reading this book is like attending an unschooling conference or, even better, sitting around with a group of unschooling friends and talking about the life. The contributors are top-notch, it's an easy read, and it does what Jan Hunt's work always does: it inspires you. Thank you, Jan and Jason, for this worthwhile addition to the literature of the movement."
