    "Clear and encouraging"

    Our school system has encouraged many programs that fit into the structure explained here. But the "whys" are answered here and the listing approach in the presentation of tasks make it more manageable in application.

    "Best suited for paper format"

    Was a good listen but the book is formatted more to be read in print than to be listened to if you want to use it to its fullest. Will probably end up buying print or Kindle as well.

    "Just started"

    I just started this audiobook and will give another review later, however I just wanted to address that the narrator Patrick Lawlor is driving me crazy by the way he pronounces his R's. I just keep hearing "classwoom" management and it's distracting.

    "Bold Efficient Insights"

    This book has many bold and effective insites for new and novice teachers. It provides structure and foundation for anyone wanting to become an effective and productive educator part time or as a full-time career. There are also many tips for being productive in the life as a whole, that carry beyond the classroom. I believe this is a foundation book for all educators. The power of vision, accountability, & choice are highlighted.

    Story
    "Too many examples, not enough meat."

    Highly inspirational, based on best practices, but a little outdated in parts, especially the part about dress. I gained good insight on how to spend the first week; however, it seemed like there was LOTS of storytelling in between and only offering a few major facets of discipline to work on. This also is very traditional in nature, not the most cutting edge stuff - more of the fundamentals of classroom management.
