Honestly, the lay out of the book is not as reader-friendly as I would like. When I read through it, I'm like 'meh'. It's just not user-friendly. But the author? The.Best.Presenter.Ever. She modeled these strategies a few years ago to an audience of about 500 educators in my city. She has us engaged on on the edge of our seats for at least 2.5 hours. This book doesn't do the topic justice.

If you are a teacher of 8+ years, this book may provide more affirmation than new information.
