Braggy and I found him hard to take.

I listened to 2-1/2 hours and couldn't take anymore. He was too much. Gimmicky. I can tell he thinks he is a great teacher.

Best Motivational Teaching Book Ever!

As I’m finishing the last part of my teaching degree, I was asked to read 5 books from a list of about 30. I was not excited about this because of the time it takes to read 5books! However, finding this book in an audio version changed my opinion. Dave is such a wonderful speaker and he truly motivates me to become the teacher I want to be. Wow, what a great experience listening to him. I can only imagine how his keynote speaking in person is! This is definitely worth the 4 hours of your time if you are a teacher needing some inspiration!

ehhh

his concept makes sense. but he lost me on the "how to be a better lover" example. He could have related his ideas differently.

Teach like a Pirate is inspirational

Are you in the capacity of a teacher? If so you will get some inspired ideas from this book. The passion with which the narrator/author reads the content is as if he is simply talking to you, which I like! Great book for the beginning teacher and for the veteran teacher. The audio sample given is a true representation of what you’re going to get from this book!

exciting material

This was a good book for educators with some great ideas for surviving and reconnecting with something that you love. The narrator was a little too over the top with their expression, for me.

New ideas to incorporate into my classroom

I'm always looking for new ideas to incorporate into my classroom. I saw him at a conference and I trave 45 minutes each way to work. I loved listening to him at the conference, and knew I would need to listen to his book. He was still fun to listen to and explained in more detail his teaching methods. If everything I teach seems like an entertaining performance, my students would never think I was teaching. I learned some great attention grabbers and now new methods I can incorporate into the classroom.

This Should Be Required Reading for Teachers

regardless of a teacher's subject matter, this book should inspire you think outside the box and to go the greatest distance possible with every available minute you have in class, everyday.
