Wanted more examples

This book is read well and I like the witty humor. I read this as a teacher hoping for more concrete examples for positive reinforcement. Though there are some throughout, I would love a list of examples (especially free ways to reinforce) and more about young adults. This book gave a good, general look at positive reinforcement. I suppose I expected more.

Great points supported by great arguments.

if only they ever got to the point. so many words for little juice. I wish he had given more examples and less explaining. I get it
