Comprehensive, informative, and inspiring. This was the best review of a semester-long course in teaching STEM that I could've hoped for. I marked my copy up and will surely refer to it often in the coming years.

I found this book very useful in both the teaching and learning aspects. From the teaching side of things it has a lot of ideas and methods on how to make STEM courses and classes more engaging and less conducive to falling asleep (but that's just from some of my personal experience).

The specific examples, clear lists,

Simply an excellent resource for an educator. This is a required text for a class I'm taking on engineering education, but I blew through it in a week. It has so much good stuff in it and is very well written. I will keep this for reference.
