Review:

"[This book] is a gem that will be extraordinarily useful to language teachers. . . . There is no book like this on the market."―Kim Potowski, University of Illinois at Chicago (Kim Potowski 2013-06-04)

"I felt like I connected really well with the book and found myself smiling and remembering incidents from my own classes during my reading. The beauty of the writing style is that new and seasoned language teachers will both find it accessible and helpful."―Rajiv Rao, University of Wisconsin-Madison (Rajiv Rao 2013-06-04)

"The more I read, the more I appreciated the depth of the content."―Orlando Kelm, University of Texas-Austin (Orlando Kelm 2013-06-10)
