'The authors have written a guide for practitioners that is both highly practical, and yet based upon sound theoretical principles….This book achieves a successful, yet often elusive, link between theory, research and practice, and deserves to have a high readership. I will have no hesitation in recommending it to a range of readers' - Jane Mott, Support for Learning
'This book fulfils its aim to explain working memory and the limits it places on children's classroom learning. For teachers it gives a very clear guide and fills a gap in understanding that can only lead to more child-centred approaches to teaching and learning' - Lynn Ambler, Support for Learning

Another good book that can appeal to professionals and laymen alike isThe Overflowing Brain: Information Overload and the Limits of Working Memory by Torkel Klingberg, a scholar in the field.
These authors have provided a great snap-shot into working memory here, specifically for educators/education. Easy to suggest this to folks interested in this topic. There are not actually many this specific on the topic. For language teachers Stevick does touch this, but not as much as what is done here, but great book on memory nonetheless, see: Memory, Meaning, and Method: Some Psychological Perspectives on Language Learning.
