"A book of this kind is long overdue!. It is a giant contribution to the field. With its emphasis on a socioliterate approach to reading and literacy, it nicely captures the prevailing view of academic literacy instruction. Its extremely skillful and well-developed balancing act between theory and practice allows it to appeal to a wide variety of readers. Pre-and-in service teachers, in particular, will benefit immensely." -- Alan Hirvela, The Ohio State University
