About the Author
Harry K. Wong and Rosemary T. Wong are award-winning teachers and new teacher advocates. Harry is a native of San Francisco and is arguably the most sought-after motivational speaker in education today having given some 3000 presentations to over a million people. He has been called "Mr. Practicality" for his common sense, user-friendly, no-cost approach to managing a classroom for high-level student success. The March 2006 issue of Instructor magazine named him one of the 20 most admired people in education along with Maya Angelou, Howard Gardner, and Oprah Winfrey. He has received numerous other teaching honors.
Rosemary is from New Orleans, Louisiana. Her classroom success led to her selection as one of the first Mentor teachers in California. She has received many Silicon Valley business honors and the Southeastern Louisiana University Distinguished Alumni Award.
A portion of the profit from the sale of their book funds "The First Days of School Foundation." That foundation has built and funds the 425 student "Wong Mean Reth Learning Academy" in the jungles of Cambodia.

For more useful, actionable specifics on classroom management I have found reading Fred Jones' articles (available free on an education website) and his book to be a worthwhile read. He gets to the point succinctly, a pleasure after suffering through the cheerleading Wong book.
