The thrust of this book might be better described if the title was changed to The Heartbreak of English: a Logical Means of Recovery. --Jack Blackburn, Retired 3M Engineer
Uncovering the Logic of English is a thoughtful guide for anyone who wants to understand language better or is looking for advice to help them teach it. --Midwest Book Review

When we can teach kids how to read well we can make change, there is hope for the future. When criminals (most illiterate or struggling readers statistically) are taught to read, the repeat offenses are cut by staggering numbers. When education improves, the national workforce is made stronger. When adults learn a better way, even things like spell checking (when the computer can't figure out what you are trying to say either) become easier and answering your kids questions about spelling rule exceptions becomes a piece of cake. The book will point out that there really aren't so many illogical rules after all. There is no doubt that we need to do better in this country with educating our students and I think this book and the Logic of English program can improve what we are capable of. Spelling can make sense, reading can get easier for those who struggle. This is powerful information. This information can be a catalyst for change.
