Fantastic book! It was really helpful!
In my 23 years working in the education field, I have never run across a book that is so packed with helpful, action-ready information yet is still such a pleasurable read. Any expert in the education field (and even other fields!) – whether you are in K-12, higher education, or research – will be guided in how to get your research findings, knowledge, or ideas out into the world where you can make a better difference. 15 online eResources come free with the book and let you know exactly who to contact if you want to go on NPR, give a TED Talk, present at a particular conference, submit a book proposal, or anything else you can think of. Also, get ready for all your presentations, articles, interviews, and other sharing opportunities to improve, because this book will help you do a phenomenal job with any knowledge-sharing endeavor. I cannot recommend this book enough; it is simply the best.
