Fantastic! McKeachie gave me my start when as a 25 year old Ph.D. student I taught my first university undergraduate course - the dreaded History and Systems of Psychology. Insightful, practical, and grounded in the neuroscience of cognition and learning. No college, university, or post-graduate instructor should be without it. Come to think of it, high school would be a much richer learning environment if grade 9 to 12 teachers read and followed the wisdom contained in this treasure chest of educational strategies.
