This is great. Much of the details in the book make sense when I think about classroom conditions and why kids act the way they sometimes do. Also, there are sensible ideas about how to best reach all students, keeping how their brain development is controlling some of their reactions and natural proclivities. I like how the chapters are arranged leading the reader through the basics to more detailed understanding of brain-based learning. ( )
