"Visible Learning for Teachers is a profoundly important book for teachers, school leaders, parents, and policymakers. John Hattie provides the 'jury standard' for educational research. Rather than the typical 'he said, she said' controversy, Hattie has amassed the preponderance of the evidence representing the work of thousands of scholars and more than a quarter-billion children. The jury – teachers, leaders, and parents – need not be swayed by the persuasive power of an individual researcher or the flavor-of-the-month initiative. Rather, we can at last make teaching and leadership decisions based upon the best available evidence from multiple sources. As you read these pages, prepare to be challenged. Hattie forced me to reconsider previously strongly held convictions, but he requires that we elevate the preponderance of the evidence over personal belief. Best of all, Hattie shows us how to determine the impact we have right now with our own students. His methods move education from the 'rear-view mirror' – what happened in other places with other students – to the 'windshield' – what is happening right now with our students. As a result, this book is the most important contribution to educational research and practice in decades."
Founder, The Leadership and Learning Center, USA
"This scope of this text is absolutely staggering. John Hattie deserves to be recognised (and probably will in time) as one of the pioneers of educational and school psychology."
Dr Dave Putwain
Programme Leader, Educational Psychology, Edge Hill University, UK
“Recognising what makes a difference enables reflection on how to do more that makes a positive difference. Reading this book should make obvious the swathes of time-consuming tasks that make no (or worse, negative) impact, making them easy to remove. It is fabulously well-researched.” - Mary Bousted, general secretary, Association of Teachers and Lecturers

I bought this book because I stumbled across a chart of ranking effects of influences on student achievement. The list is just a list. I hoped the book would expand on what each item on the list fully meant and gave examples. In the most boring way, the author tells you what to do BUT not how to go about it. Most of it is common sense.
I've gathered two excellent tips:
1. Learn more about SOLO taxonomy
2. Learn more about National Board Certification (apparently, going through their PD program AND becoming certified will ensure that you're using some of the influences with the greatest impact.)
You can find the list of 150 influences for free anywhere but the top 10 and their explanations can be found here: http://visible-learning.org/glossary/
