What Reviewers Are Saying
"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"
