Seems to be sound in its approach and suggestions. I have some reservations, however: the book has not gone beyond the conventional "how-to", which seems to be a pity, because Mr (and Mrs) Wong do seem to have most of the right ideas. (NOTE: My reservations are obviously based on an inadequate understanding of the book's contents).
No, I do not plan to purchase the book, US $ 25- appears to be too steep for me, as I'm not even a teacher!!
