Good ideas but misleading

The book has a lot of good idea and examples but a large portion of the book talking about the effectiveness of the program due to class meetings. However they never go over how to do class meetings. It's like being told how awesome a sandwich is when using a special sauce then not being told how or where to get the sauce.

Audio Version Needs an Accompanying PDF

It is quite annoying to have a narrator read charts and figures to you rather than just having a PDF to look at. Anyway, although I believe the research and ideas are good and many of the concepts/practices can be applied at any age level, I am processing on my own how to implement them in a secondary classroom with 45-minute to 1-hour classes a few times a week. I need more about quick group meetings and age-appropriate responses. The overall reminder that punishment-reward systems do not work (see Alfie Kohn and Daniel Pink's work) is a good one and the suggestions to look for inaccurate beliefs that spawn inappropriate behaviors are valuable.
