    Well... I was going to consider buying this until I saw at least

    Well... I was going to consider buying this until I saw at least three typos in the overview. If the author of the book is that careless, I'm not placing much faith in his classroom management tactics. The 3 stars are only to be fair since I haven't actually read the book.
