The book is one of the best written how-to books, revealing seven interesting strategies and giving recent research validating each. There is a lively introduction with an overview of the whole book, and a hint at the great strategies that would lie ahead. The appendices at the end of the book give a Brain Briefing and a rich and varied catalog of interesting graphic advanced organizers.

She has already written three other successful teaching books, including Becoming A Wiz at Brain-based Teaching, published by Corwin Press.
