If you ever get a hankering for a vaguely supercilious book with a few good tips on teaching and a whole mess of uninteresting theoretical polemics, look no further. And if you love finding typos by published authors, you're in luck! You'd think with four people's names on the cover somebody could copy edit, but I guess there are more important things to do, like attend conferences and schmooze (literally recommended in the last chapter-- do I sound frustrated with the state of education?)

There are some very good tools and ideas in this book. However, I often get confused about what she is talking about because she doesn't elaborate on an idea until later. The organization can become confusing as well.
