This book should be in every school library, if not in every teacher's library. It is full of practical advice on everything from lesson planning to seating arrangements to classroom demeanor to teacher/student and teacher/supervisor relationships. The information is well-organized, comprehensive, and engagingly presented. In the first months of this school year I have continually referred back to the book and have always found answers to questions or reminders about things I may have forgotten. Eyster and Martin are a constant inspiration to me to find ways to be a better teacher. Highly recommended!

Rich Eyster and Christine Martin draw on extensive experience as teachers and observers of classrooms to produce a book that is at once an appreciation of the complexity of teaching and an accessible and engaging analysis of its components-and most usefully, a way of understanding and managing effectively these components. As a resource for an individual teacher or as the basis of continuing professional development for a faculty group, their work is invaluable.

Richard H. Eyster and Christine Martin have fooled us! They have crafted an extraordinary tome for all ages and types of teachers, full of wit, wisdom and personal experiences that toy with the innocuous title. This is a book that many of us who have experienced first hand this wonderful profession wanted to write after gaining a modicum of experience but never found time. Thank goodness Eyster and Martin found the time to share this gathering of evidence that by developing learnable skills the classroom can be an opportunity to learn and grow for both teacher, especially the new educator, and the student. A great primer for those entering the classroom and a powerful review for all of us hardened by the classroom years. Jerry Millhon,Former School Principal and Mentor to Young Educators

I had this book recommended to me as a teacher starting out... I'm so glad that I did! It had a lot of advice and insights that would have never occurred to me, and it allowed me to move into my new role with a sense of preparadeness, authority, and even confidence. A clear and comprehensive guide-- I highly recommend it to teachers young and old.

I think this book is terrific! The writing style is clear, persuasive, humorous, anecdotal, and very well-organized. The structure and lay-out make it easy to read, and I think it will be a tremendous asset for all teachers, not just rookies. Certainly new teachers stand to learn a lot from the insights and suggestions presented, but veterans can pick up a few helpful pointers as well. I recently had something happen with one of my students that seemed to come right from the book's pages! I particularly enjoyed the emphasis on the importance of praise, and the highlighted section on avoiding sarcasm; those of us with a sarcastic sense of humor still have to stop ourselves every now and then! This book should be required reading for all teachers!
