Didn't read this, just skimmed it. The advice is basically consistent with other reading comprehension resources: make connections between the text and your experience/other texts/other parts of the original text. Visualize. Ask questions.

This book contains much more detail than other similar books I've read (>300 pages), with many detailed lesson plans. Each technique is broken down into several possible variants and flavours, each of which is treated separately. Most of the examples relate to elementary schools.

For all of these reasons, this just wasn't the book I was looking for.
