The textbooks vignettes are very interesting and applicable and help the reader better put into perspective and practice the theories and strategies. The author's hallmark cases remain, both in written and video format, to introduce real-world applications in a way that no other text can. It does give a lot of good examples and advice which can be helpful if you're interested in the teaching field. Highly recommended.
