Ten Ways to Destroy the Imagination of Your Child

“Esolen signals with this book his presence in the top rank of authors of cultural criticism.” —American Spectator


'“Almost none of the sweeping trends of the past 30 years avoids Mr. Esolen’s sweeping gaze. . . . His skewering of contemporary culture with all of its political correctness and shallow moral gestures is devastating.” —Washington Times“Witty, provocative, and insightful. Parents will feel empowered and encouraged by Esolen’s uncommon sense.” —Michael Medved, nationally syndicated talk radio host“Esolen signals with this book his presence in the top rank of authors of cultural criticism, following in the footsteps of Richard Weaver, Walker Percy, Russell Kirk, John Senior, Christopher Lasch, and Roger Scruton. . . . This book is unfailingly witty and also maddening, reminding the reader of what was our American culture and calling us to take action.” —American Spectator“The book is full of gems. . . . Esolen’s case for the human imagination is extraordinarily important.” —Catholic Culture“This book made me want to jump up (very high) and cheer, or run around (very far) and shout warnings. . . . All educators [should] take this uncommonly commonsensical book to heart. A worthy successor to C. S. Lewis’s The Abolition of Man.” —Peter Kreeft, professor of philosophy, Boston College"A lament for what we have lost and are losing: honor, humility, non-eroticized love, truth, and faith." —Conversations on Philanthropy“Esolen dissects the sources of the problem with irony, biting wit, and a writing style reminiscent of C. S. Lewis in The Screwtape Letters. . . . This book is essential reading for parents, educators and anyone who is concerned to rescue children from the tedious and vacuous thing childhood has become.” —Education Reporter '
