There are great insights in this book, but I always get the feeling Lemov is stretching things out for length. Whereas a shorter book could focus on the main concepts of rethinking practice, how to practice, modeling, feedback, culture building, and post-practice skills, this one breaks those alr...

I thought the book had a very organized, clear set up. I also really enjoyed the direct writing style, particularly because it is an 'advice' book.

This book had some good ideas. I found the rules under ‘Using Modeling’ and ‘Feedback’ helpful. However, the book was perhaps a little lengthier than was necessary.

The golden nuggets are words of wisdom from John Wooden. The book includes lots of solid suggestions, but 42 rules does seem a bit listy, even for a type A listmaker like me. However, I must read Lemov's Teach Like a Champion.

Для такого вредного читателя как я, книга, скорее, слабенькая :( Рецензия получилась ругательная: http://s-kalinin.blogspot.ru/2013/09/...
