"All too often, modern examination of the reading act focuses on the mechanics of the process. This book, perhaps because the authors' expertise lies in the field of psychology, offers a valuable discussion of why readers read and what changes occur as a result of that act of reading..." - Professor James L. McCan, Nova Southeastern University, Florida"
