Dry and repetitive.

I was hoping to find a book for college teachers that is as useful as "Teach like a champion" is for elementary school teachers. This book is not it. The author interviewed or surveyed many top college teachers, but rather than letting them tell us what they do that works, he makes it all dull by putting his own ideas over whatever it is that they do. There is no evidence in this book that Bain can teach, and his writing is incredibly soporific.

If you have trouble getting to sleep at night, try a page or two of this book.

Very repetitive! Read something else

I read this book in conjunction with a Ph.D. level class at The Ohio State University. I have 25 years of successful teaching experience which made this book extremely boring to read. If you are a young, inexperienced future collegiate educator you might glean some wisdom from this book, but I wouldn't count on it.
