It probably would be a good book for a first year teacher...but I've read better. It simply skimmed over items that you should be aware of in your classroom, but didn't really get to the heart of the issues. How to deal with the real problems. It sounds nice and is comprehensive, but it's like drinking a shake for dinner instead of eating meat and potatoes.
