The book is very technical. She illustrates a lengthy knowledge of reading practices and solutions but it's overshadowed by her medical explanations of how the mind works. This is good information but not precisely what the reader is seeking to obtain. The "steps" will need to distilled from the vast amount of data supplied. Which is unfortunate if the person that purchased the book was looking for steps to correct his or her comprehension.
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
If the first 5 chapters would have provided any useful information in terms of applicability as either parent or teacher, I would have provided a higher rating. Much ado about brain scans and what not.
Would you ever listen to anything by Judy Willis again?
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Rosemary Benson?

What did you like best about Teaching the Brain to Read: Strategies for Improving Fluency, Vocabulary and Comprehension? What did you like least?
I gave it 2-3 hours of listening and they were still focused on the biology of the brain and the psychology of it. Not a book for someone who wants to improve their reading skill but perhaps in later chapters this will come out. It was more like a very technical university book so keep this in mind if you chose to purchase.
