Practical and Accessible

Great advice, clearly organized. I do wish that some of the pre-reading quiz questions had follow-up so that I was never left with a question mark. And I'm shocked by the high price for such a thin book. It's not thin on content, though. If you can find it for less than fifty dollars, I highly recommend it.

It just makes sense!

We used this as our main text in a teacher training program and it is straightforward and clear. It is full of helpful tips like: "Teach the students, not the book." "Don't overcorrect." "Nothing is "interesting" if you can't do it." and my own favorite" "Don't flog a dead horse." Each chapter has a checklist to check before reading the chapter for the reader to check what you may have learned or changed your mind about after reading the chapter. The book isn't weighted down with a lot of extra information. Just the basics that are most helpful when starting out.
