    This book was published in 2005, making some of the information in terms of using technology in education a bit dated. The book is set up into 17 chapters of broken down tips, similar to the book of Proverbs in the Bible or Meditations by Marcus Aurelius, except the information deals with teaching and presenting information to students. The information can be very helpful for librarians who have yet to learn much about teaching methods. Overall, I rate this book a 3 out of 5 stars.

    Some outdated (and quasi-sexist) ideas mixed in here (what is up with Chapter Two's 'tip' that "It is better to wear no makeup than to use it badly?!") but overall, some good, mostly general, reminders on proper presentation technique and adaptations for learning styles.
