Who wants to do a book review?

A day or two ago, I received an email from Dr. Brian Ray, president of the National Home Education Research Institute (NHERI) and editor‑in‑chief of the Home School Researcher (a peer-reviewed journal). He wrote: "Would you be interested, or can you think of someone who might be, in writing a book review of this new book for our 37 year-old peer-reviewed journal Home School Researcher?"

The book is titled "An Economic Theory of Home Schooling" by Brian Baugus. It's brand-new, published Feb. 15, 2022.

From the blurb: "In this book, Brian Baugus examines home schooling as an education enterprise, arguing that successful home school families have the same characteristics and motivations as entrepreneurs. Baugus examines the history and economic theories behind home schooling to explain the rational decision-making that motivates home schooling endeavors, examining dissatisfaction with mainstream education, expectations of return on investment, and resistance from established providers."

Dr. Ray said there would be no remuneration for the reviewer, but he will provide a free copy. (It's an expensive book, so this could be a huge benefit.)

My schedule is too full to do justice to this request, so I asked permission to post this on the blog, and he agreed. If you're interested, please contact Dr. Ray directly.
