Short and Useful

As a 4th year teacher, I agree with everything mentioned in this book. I love how honest the author is and how well he explained his reasoning. All educators can benefit from reading this short book.

Probably Could've Given It 4 Stars?

Although I think this is a book all educators should read, it's narration was very bland and the key points are more of a paintbrush rather than specific nuanced skills. At the same time, it has a lot of value. I liked the list of main ideas and there are parts of this book I am definitely going to remember again in the future; I may even make a list of them. However, maybe it makes a better printed text, but the whole time I just kept thinking there was going to be more to it?

like a friendly slap in the face

It reminds your of the reasons you got into teaching and calls on you (hand raised or not) to answer that call. It has great and actionable, common sense steps to get you back on track. I hope I can start applying it Monday!

Reassuring for high performers

For teachers or student teachers it's a reassuring and motivating listen, outlining principles to work and live by
