Reviews

"Unique and compelling. Eyler brings lyrical prose and a truly fresh perspective to problems that have stubbornly persisted."
Michelle D. Miller, author of Minds Online: Teaching Effectively with Technology
"A warm, humane little book--a scientifically informed reminder that even in college, students and teachers are really driven by emotion, anxiety, curiosity, and care."
Daniel F. Chambliss, coauthor of How College Works
"A wonderful tool for reflection on one's own teaching practice, a way to catalog one's own values and how we put them into practice in the classroom and out."
Inside Higher Ed

"Joshua R. Eyler, who directs the Rice University Center for Teaching Excellence, has done all teachers--and all people curious about learning--a major service with this book."
Chicago Tribune


"A splendid repository of ways to rethink how we teach college."
Los Angeles Review of Books
