The following is a reader’s review of our little book:

“The Fundamental 5 should be required reading for every educator. This book should also be required for every teacher preparation program in the United States.”

Funny that you should suggest the use of the Fundamental 5 in teacher preparation programs because I just recently received the following e-mail.

Sean and Mike, Just wanted you to know that Sam Houston State University IS using your book, The Fundamental 5, in the College of Education.  This is now the second year the school has used it. Hoo Ray!

Then, we were notified that this week that The Fundamental 5 is currently the second best-selling education theory book on Kindle.  Beating out such heavyweights as Marzano, Reeves and Whitaker. This is beyond our imagination. But do know that we understand that this success is because schools across the country want to replicate the success of the hard-working educators that make up the LYS Nation.  Laird and I can’t begin to thank you enough!

Think. Work. Achieve. Your turn…
