This is one in a bundle that was shipped to my school which I took home to read over the summer as personal PD. It was really disappointing and I wouldn't recommend it to any staff members since I didn't learn anything that I didn't already know. It was quite American, which made me surprised that it was selected as a bulk purchase. The title sounded great, but it really wasn't very interesting or useful. It contains reviews of research, but very few specific suggestions for helping struggling readers; mostly just general ideas like struggling readers need to read more than they do right now. Huh! You think? Waste of an evening to read this book. Sorry to be so harsh.

This book provides practical ideas in a highly readable and organized format as well as an extensive bibliography that reveals the comprehensive research backing up the author's work.
