    " To me it seemed like everything in this book was taken from someone else's research and teaching methodology. It's all stuff good teachers do anyway. I actually found it rather insulting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura (booksnob) | 3/22/2010

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Elizabeth | 12/6/2009

    " Provides some interesting information on brain differences between adolescent boys and girls. But other than that not very valuable. At times, it seems sexist (just look at the cover). Nothing groundbreaking for teachers or parents just another analysis of how kids learn. "
