A gem of a book that brings light to the way in which words are read and spelled. This is a very useful book for teachers, parents and anyone interested in bringing the joy of reading to our nation's children. --Dr. Reid Lyon, Distinguished Professor of Education Policy, Southern Methodist University
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

BTW, the second edition has a comparison of British, Canadian, and USian spellings, but, IMO, is not worth getting if you already have the first.
Also, in case you are unaware, there is a whole teaching program called The Logic of English sold by the author. Samples are on her web page. (And no, I don't work for her -- I just appreciate her concise and clear writing.)
(P.S. there are a lot more reviews on the page for the older edition.)
