I ordered this as a required text for a graduate school course, but I found myself drawn into reading it before I got my assignment syllabus. I had the introduction and the first two chapters complete, as well as the comprehension activities at the end of each chapter before I got my first assignments... It's well-written, and useful for all subject areas and grade levels...
