Reviews

"Steve Brill has combined extraordinary reporting with smart passion to create one of the most important historical narratives of our era. This inside story of the school reform crusade is an inspiring saga filled with genuine heroes. This is investigative journalism and powerful writing at its best."
--Walter Isaacson, CEO, Aspen Institute; Board Chair, Teach For America; author of Einstein and Benjamin Franklin
"Education in America is THE national imperative of the 21st century and Steven Brill has done a brilliant job of taking us through the complexities, trials and triumphs, failures and food fights that define the struggle to get it right. We all have a stake in the outcome and owe it to succeeding generations to get involved. Class Warfare is the road map to what that means."
--Tom Brokaw, journalist and author of The Greatest Generation
"Class Warfare inspires! This is a unique and critically important story about true heroes in America who against great odds are making a real difference. More than this, Brill's work sheds important light on the savage educational disparities faced by low-income communities across the country and through his work he trumpets what should be a call to action by all of us. Brill is brilliant in his writing and his work will inspire and fortify all those struggling with the challenges of education in America."
--Cory A. Booker, Mayor of Newark, NJ
"An extraordinarily well researched and compelling account of the tectonic shifts in school politics over the past several years. This is a masterpiece, both as history and as a catalyst for continued change. Far from the usual one-sided account the subject typically engenders, Brill's work is balanced, sophisticated--and, amazingly, a real page-turner."
--Chris Christie, Governor of New Jersey
"Steven Brill's Class Warfare is hard-hitting, illuminating, and inspiring. It's also as fast-paced and gripping as a thriller. His vivid accounts of great teachers at work--and his play-by-play of the battle to remove the obstacles put in front of them by their own union--opened my eyes and changed my outlook about the possibilities for American education. A must-read call to action for all thinking Americans, especially parents."
--Amy Chua, Yale Law Professor and author of Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother and Day of Empire: How Hyperpowers Rise to Global Dominance--and Why They Fall
