Only negative: Although the title claims "plain English", I needed a notecard to keep track of all the track of all the three letter acronyms and their definitions. Still the book is very readable and worth putting up with the notecard.
I also purchased, K9 Behavior Basics: A Manual for Proven Success in Operational Service Dog Training (K9 Professional Training) by Resi Gerritsen and Ruud Haak. I found Excel-Erated Learning to be much clearer and relevant to training at a third the cost.
Other recommended books are Coaching People to Train Dogs by Terry Ryan.
Additional: Some of the training methods discussed in this book are controversial and unpopular. Regardless of your personal beliefs, if you take this book, read it (putting aside your opinions on how to train or how not to train) it is a very good text book.
If you really want to get into something meaty that'll push buttons try Coercion and its fallout by Murray Sidman.
