Reviews

Scott Newstok's latest book, How to Think Like Shakespeare, could be just the game changer the teacher (and administrator should have) ordered. . . . I couldn't help but be won over by his earnest enthusiasm for the subject and ended up wanting to hear still more.---Robert M. LoAlbo, PlayShakespeare.com
How to Think Like Shakespeare is not the work of an activist militating for his cause but a thinker reveling in his work. Newstok reminds us that this work is, above all, fun, and the calling on display is infectious.---Karl Schuettler, A Patient Cycle
As a concise history of Western pedagogical development, How to Think Like Shakespeare succeeds beautifully. . . . By the end of How To Think Like Shakespeare, [Newstok] has us thoroughly convinced. To think and create effectively requires one to train and practice. By apprenticing ourselves to the past, we can ourselves become links in the glorious chain of human intellectual achievement.---Fernanda Moore, Chapter 16
