I like the book's stance promotion of sustained silent reading programs and demonization of the way we teach spelling to kids. So, basically, I bought this one hook, line and sinker. The other great plus of this book is that it is very readable and interesting.
What's more, this book taught me random facts that I will for no reason remember and then share with other who will not care. Such as: the lexicon of most television is 5,000 words (aka: not very many words).
Moral of this story: books are good. that is all.
