Forty years after its publication, the story arc of I’ll Get There is quite predictable, so I found myself wanting to know how events and feelings would be portrayed, rather than wanting to know what would happen next.
I’d heard a lot about this book in the past, and one of the schools that I was teaching at even used it as required reading for one of its courses. I’ve been meaning to pick up a copy and see what it was about for quite a while, but hadn’t until now. I wanted a shorter book aimed at a younger audience to be a “buffer” between longer, more difficult books, and it definitely provided that.
Now, maybe it’s because I’m not American, but I had no idea that this television show with Danza teaching had ever existed. And so, when the audiobook popped up in my recommendations list on Audible, it was the first I’d heard of it. Never being one to miss a book about someone’s teaching experiences, though, I decided to pick it up.
