Walking on Water is a provocative look at writing, teaching, creativity, and life by a writer increasingly recognized for his passionate and articulate critique of modern civilization. Jensen reveals how schools perpetuate the great illusions of our culture: that happiness lies outside of ourselves, and that pleasing those in power is the only lesson worth learning. Book jacket.
