Let me qualify with the obvious, this is a textbook, I wouldn't grab this as a "must read". I did however really enjoy the bulk of this book. Most of it, but not all, is written with a clear lack of bias. The ideas in the book strive to aim for the real world. Some of the textbooks in this subject area too often lean towards what I like to call the "fluffy" approach that says that everyone will love you if you treat 6 year old like adults. It really does offer insights into the psychology of teaching that can help with developing new and additional skills as a teacher.
