Why Weren't We Taught This at School ? By Alice Sheldon Yes , the very question in the title is worthy of a discussion. We should be taught some form of this in school and in reality , at a fairly young age . People are being told to , Be Kind. But really what does this actual mean ? In the book , whilst Alice Sheldon does not ask nor cover this , it is a book worthy of finding the answer to that question and many others. We sometimes react to a person in a way that has been taught or shown to us from a young age , or through learned experiences . This book shows us there are other ways that can ultimately improve our relationship with others and by that , ourselves. Brilliant and thought provoking.
