"This book has very important material and research findings that are relevant to teachers, teacher trainers, and anyone interested in the teaching of reading. The teaching of reading, in general, is still lacking a professional and theoretical basis in most language classes, for both first or second language and all teachers could benefit from a good discussion of reading strategies. Most "reading" teachers are not fully aware of the need to instruct students in how to develop individual reading strategies and this book could answer this need" – Prof. Emeritus Elite Olshtain
