For my English teacher friends, this book is a must! While most reading books focus on how to help challenged readers, this one focuses on how to make meaning out of more difficult texts for average and above average readers. Gallahger's ideas are fresh, engaging and meaningful. With every chapter, I found a lesson or strategy that I can't wait to implement. Gallagher uses examples from novels that he himself has taught and sites them by name. I found specific strategies that tie directly to novels I teach.

If you are tired of doing the same old thing in your class, and if you really want to spice things up for your students, this is the book for your class. Simply, it's the most useful teaching book I've ever owned.
