This book touched on all areas important to successful classroom management; I have not found everything covered here in any other single source. This book is a must for all new teachers who really want to succeed. It is a great book for comparing the most recent research available. I do feel that I really understand the material by the time I finish reading the book. I have also used many of the ideas in my classroom to try and improve my classroom management in my student teaching experience.
