Control Unleashed: The Puppy Program is meant as “preventive medicine” for puppy raisers. Many common behavior problems can be either prevented or minimized by starting a puppy with good foundation training from the beginning. In addition, this book provides a program that will help you create a puppy that is ready for sport-specific training at the appropriate age—a puppy with the ability to focus on whatever you want, for as long as you want, whenever you want.

Nonetheless, this book is a very solid book. It taught me all about the premack principle, which I effectively use with my dog all the time. The games are also fun. Both me and my dog learned a lot from them even though we don't do any agility at all. Despite its poor organization, it's still a really good book and worth every penny I paid.
We saw a change almost immediately after working through pieces of McDevitt's book. Mat training (giving the dog a safe place to be calm), the fundamentals of using a clicker for immediate reinforcement, and the how-to behind letting your pup solve problems himself to let him enter the outside world confidently were really lifesavers for us and him. Totally great.
It would also help if there was a glossary of important terms/subjects.
