Summary (From the publisher):

Red brick, machinery, and smoke-darkened chimneys. Reason, facts, and statistics. This is the world of Coketown, the depressed mill town that is the setting for one of Charles Dickens' most powerful and unforgettable novels.

The highest priority for Thomas Gradgrind, head of Gradgrind model day school, is his version of education—feeding the mind while starving the soul and spirit. Inflexible and unyielding, he places conformity above curiosity and sense over sentiment...only to find himself betrayed by the standards that govern his own unhappy life.

Originally published serially in Household Words.
