Here's Pat's description of the book:
John was a different kind of teacher, to be sure, and this book shows how his personal and intellectual journey led him to support alternatives to school, not alternative schools, as a hopeful path for education. The book contains essays by people who knew John personally and were influenced by him, worked with him, or were taught by him. There are 16 essays by a variety of people, including Dr. Thomas Armstrong (author of Neurodiversity), Strobe Talbott (president of the Brookings Institute), Berrien Moore (director of the National Weather Service), and people long associated with homeschooling and GWS, including Larry and Susan Kaseman, Wendy Priesnitz, Susannah Sheffer, Aaron Falbel, Vita Wallace, Theo and Anita Geisy, and Peter Bergson. I plan to have this book published and ready for sale by mid-January 2013.
