"John Ohliger made you angry, made you think, made you laugh, made you want to sing, made you read literature late into the night and poetry when you might have been working. His remarkable story is of the making of the most influential adult education intellectual in the United States of the twentieth century working outside the university. Grace and Rocco deliver the goods on this complex and challenging activist adult educator."
—Budd Hall, director, Office of Community-Based Research, University of Victoria

"I met John Ohliger just once. He was a crusty, challenging, eccentric, wonderful man. This is a remarkable book about that wonderful man, in which you can hear Ohliger's own voice and then read a whole crowd of leading thinkers in the field of adult education reflecting on his legacy. You do not get this kind of quality thinking between two covers too often."
—Michael Newman, author, Teaching Defiance

"John Ohliger was a quite unique adult educator and he made his impression on American adult education. Educators should know his work and this book provides an excellent introduction to it. The authors are to be commended for making it known to a new generation."
—Peter Jarvis, editor, International Journal of Lifelong Education
