Really great book. Although it addressed some really great points it is important to know that it's only covering one "side" of the current "reading war". It is a very whole language approach based book. It covers great points and puts things in a very insightful perspective but to me the reading wars is not a completely black and white issue. But overall very good!

Conversation -- it's dynamism and responsiveness -- seems to be at the root of growth and connection.
