Summary

Reading Without Nonsense remains a groundbreaking, humanistic antidote to the managed "systems" approach to reading instruction. In his extensively revised fourth edition, Frank Smith brings teachers and teacher educators up to date on how reading should not be taught. It is a necessary reminder that reading and learning to read are natural activities.
