View Author Bio
Glasser, William :
William Glasser, M.D., has been working with schools since 1956. His first book for teachers, Schools Without Failure, has been read by over a million educators, but the goal of actually running a school without failure has been hard to accomplish. In 1990 Dr. Glasser created the concept of a quality school -- a school where there is no failure because all students are doing competent work and many are doing quality work. In the years since the first edition of this book was published, over two hundred schools are working in the Quality School Consortium trying to become quailty schools. Several have succeeded and more are getting closer. Dr. Glasser continues to generate new ideas, and this book has been updated to reflect some of his latest thinking on choice theory. His new theory is explained in depth in his 1998 book, Choice Theory : A New Psychology of Personal Freedom.
"A few weeks after I received this book, I showed it to my television audience and said, 'This is a fabulous book.' I was impressed with its clarity, its many examples, and how we can all use it to improve our marriages, get along better with our families, and persuade our children to do well in school. Choice theory, as Dr. Glasser explains it, is a new psychology of health and joy."
--Dr. Robert H. Schuller, Founding Pastor, Crystal Cathedral Ministries
"Choice Theory is absolutely superb both in its ideas and in the way that it is presented in this book. It is in a class of its own in clarity and depth of understanding and is exceedingly helpful in clinical practice."
--Dr. Robert Lefever, director of the PROMIS Recovery Centres, UK
"Bill Glasser has always demonstrated insight and understanding in describing human behavior. In Choice Theory he has deepened his perspectives and shows the reader alternatives of appropriate behavior. This book is the best of Dr. Glasser's distinguished works--a must for people in the helping professions."
--Richard L. Foster, educational consultant and former superintendent of schools (Berkeley, CA)
