My Personal Summer Reading Program

What in your view is the best book on teaching and why? What teaching book do you recommend? Share your views and experiences. I received this discussion forum through an email from Teacher Magazine. It is a discussion forum, that as I read, I wanted to make a list. Now I have my own summer reading program. I’d like to grow the list with your best book on teaching and why? Might be a valuable list for a professional development collection. I’ll let you know after I read them.
I look forward to hearing about your favorite teaching book.
