Good Stuff Oct 9, 2008
This book has changed the way I view teachers and teaching. It gets a little flowery and overbearing with the metaphors sometimes, but for the most part this is an excellent book that I will refer back to for the rest of my teaching career.
Absolutely the best book on teaching available today. Mar 6, 2008
I first read this book about 12 years ago, or so. It changed the way I approach instruction of any kind. I reread it all the time. Easy to read, full of application and challenge. If you are in ANY leadership role, you need this book. You can be a dry, boring teacher, or you can influence others and change lives. Don't be content to be a part of the mass of dull, ineffective teachers who fill our schools and universities across the country. Change the way you think and change the way you teach. Read this book!

I am a freshman in college and am in the Secondary English track. This book is actually one of our textbooks, and it is by far my favorite book! If you want to become a master teacher, read this book and apply its principles. All my former teachers are getting this book from me for Christmas this year!

The text book accompanied with the video series is a phenomenal teacher training package. I am beginning the second series with the book and videos this month (January) The readings by themselves are excellent, but seeing Dr. Bruce Wilkinson in action has made the attendess read the book.
This book is highly recommended for anyone thinking about teaching or persons in leadership.
Teach ANYTHING to anyone?! I don't think so! Nov 13, 2005
These books have the most misleading titles! Unless you are teaching Sunday school bible classes, this book is mostly useless, because the only examples it gives you are about how to better teach the bible. The title says 'teach almost anything to pratically anyone'. That is so NOT TRUE. Sure, it gives you some pointers, but I feel I have to squeeze the text really hard to get some juice. I bought this book and 'Almost Every Answer for Practically Any Teacher' hoping to learn how to teach better, and to get in touch with modern teaching skills. What a disappointment and a waste of money! The other book went straight to the garbage can. Another thing: if all the examples of bible teaching were stripped out of the book, it would be half the size and, perhaps, a much more pleasurable read. Maybe it would even earn another star!
