Not particularly helpful or insightful, but the end-of-chapter points help it be a quick scan.
Coming from natural science, a soft-science like this is so frustrating: no real control group, so many unknown and un-controlable variables, how much change is due to someone who is simply a very motivating teacher who is excited about the new thing vs. the technique? That said, I do "feel" on a squishy level that changing technique can lead to real change in overall student learning and this book is a good place to start getting ideas on what techniques might be useful to implement.
Nice summary of research relevant to teaching. Sadly, the book makes clear the sparsity of high quality research. Definitely offers some solid principles for effective facilitation of student learning. Hopefully, a future book will outline even more evidence-based teaching principles.
