"I appreciate the literature selections....It is very handy for my students to have these selections in their books so I can use them to demonstrate instructional techniques with them. The level of documentation is very comfortable to me. Cooper solidly references the knowledge base, but the text is clearly focused on content. It doesn't read like a literature review, as some do." -- Review
