Teach Like Your Hair is on Fire
Very disappointed with this book. It has a negative tone to it, and then tries to see the positive. Was hoping for something more inspirational from a seasoned teacher.
How come so much?
$25.95 ??? Why is the same book (same narrator) on many other sites (including the leader in this market ...audible) for $7.49 ... I like the convenience of buying through itunes but not to the tune of 3 times the price .... sorry guys... fail on this one!
