I recommend this book to any teacher. I particularly recommend this book to teachers who do not have a great deal of experience. Reading and learning from it will save you from making many mistakes.

There are many very good ideas here. As I read this I kept having thoughts like, "I wish I'd thought of that." "This will work." "Oh, that's a good idea." "Makes sense." And over and over and over I thought, "Practical."

I found several helpful tips, techniques, processes, and assignments in here, including some I already use. Much of it is common sense, but that's what makes it good -- it doesn't demand that you rethink your entire approach, but rather just gives a few practical, simple-to-implement ideas you just might not have thought of yet.

I especially appreciate that I didn't have to dig through chapters of unnecessary anecdotes and cute writing to find the good tips -- who has time for that? Teachers are busy people, and this book catered to us -- it got right to the point, with no fluff.

The writing is mediocre, but who cares? I found some good ideas, and that's what I was looking for.

This book is chock full of good and often really good ideas for English teachers to use in the classroom. Got two minutes left? He has a great idea. Having trouble with students following your discussions? He's got another idea for that. Want to teach the basics of persuasion? Boy does he have a good plan for that!

All are grounded in common sense. He says they have been tested in the classroom, and I believe it. More than once I thought, why that's so simple, why didn't I think of that?

This is a valuable text. It is practical. I learned a great deal reading this book. The ideas will work with any curriculum. The writer is a classroom veteran intent on disseminating good ideas and not out to strut his ego.
I wish I had read this when I was studying to be a teacher. While I intend for this review to echo many of the positive comments others have made, I also want to suggest that professors who teach people intending to become high school English teachers should read this book and introduce it to their students!
