    A reviewer

    First published in 1884, 'The Seven Laws of Teaching' offers a clear, practical guide to the laws governing the art of teaching. Eductational fads come and go, but foundational principles never change. John Milton Gregory, succinctly offers the reader seven factors that contribute to successful teaching in any setting. For the busy classroom teacher, this short book shuns superfluous nonsence and gets to the core of what it takes to be a great teacher.
