My district sent me this book because I work with struggling readers. I'd planned to take it home for the summer but it ended up in the wrong box. It took me a while to find it again so I'll probably spend some time re-reading.

It's a good book, filled with anecdotes. The strategies tend to be general but I like the way the anecdotes deal with both struggling readers and "successful" readers. After all, don't we all become struggling readers when we read a topic we are unfamiliar with?

I would recommend reading this short book in small doses, perhaps a chapter a day. That provides more time to digest and ponder what is being read. I wouldn't recommend breezing through it (a true temptation due to the brevity of the book).
