    A solid 4.5 stars!! I felt that many of things were a review as I have learned so much already through teaching. I hope to revisit this book often and utilize through a book study with a group I am part of.

    I dislike sounding 'below the line' or 'negative'; however, although an easy read, I did not feel I found anything new in this book from any other self-help or professional book. New names for old hat, perhaps. Another way to put a 'positive' spin on what is wrong in education & how to handle it. (You can't do anything about it, so just smile & stay above the line. Lemons to lemonade, buddy!) Even a way to get rid of friends, essentially (because they are a weight of negativity, not a benefit).

But...educators are tired of being told to toe the line, ignore, smile, & if you pretend hard enough, it'll all go away. It should be noted that this was a professional book given to us by admin for a faculty study. It was not a 'free choice' reading.

    This, like many teacher-improvement books, offered a nice refresher of things teachers already know. The PD this group did at my school offered the same advice, in a more entertaining fashion than the book. I'd recommend that experience over reading he book hands down.

    Better than most teacher books, I'd say. Tries to train you to think like a "Top 20" teacher, acting the way the best teachers act and in so doing becoming one of them.
