This was the most poorly organized textbook I have ever used. The material was so disjointed that I had to utilize other sources to get information for my class. In addition, the index in the back was not exhaustive nor aligned with the material in the book. I would suggest choosing different authors if you need to learn about actual classroom management theories because the Joneses left out some major players.
