    I don't know that I can rate a textbook the same way I do my personal reading, but here goes: I liked the format of the book; it was consistent and made things easy to find from chapter to chapter. It gives a pretty good general overview on the various subjects it covers (and it covers quite a few areas of disability, as well as gifted and talented students). It's not very specific, and I don't think it's intended to be, so it would be a frustrating reference if you're looking for details on a c I don't know that I can rate a textbook the same way I do my personal reading, but here goes: I liked the format of the book; it was consistent and made things easy to find from chapter to chapter.

It's not very specific, and I don't think it's intended to be, so it would be a frustrating reference if you're looking for details on a certain topic or intervention. Still it's one that I plan to keep around for a good quick reference on general disability subjects. I can't believe I finished the first textbook of my Special Education graduate career!

    This is a really great resource that I will keep in my teacher library forever. I learned so much about different exceptionalities, including great details about my own child that I hadn't considered before. Unlike most textbooks, this was actually readable and enjoyable.

    I only had to read like 5 chapters of this for class but idk how else to mark it because this isn't a DNF situation, so. The overall book is fairly balanced and updated (my class...less so). Previously: Despite this being an updated edition published LAST YEAR, I've already found that it uses the actual phrase "transgendered to male" so this should be fun...

    I had so many problems with this textbook. It does try to cover a huge amount of content in fewer than 400 pages, but this means that many issues are glossed over or ignored. Massive amounts of text are used detailing history and causes (which are interesting) while topics more relevant to educators such as diagnosis and teaching strategies are far less detailed. There are also many examples of political and cultural bias in the book that will leave new educators wondering why they are getting p I had so many problems with this textbook. It does try to cover a huge amount of content in fewer than 400 pages, but this means that many issues are glossed over or ignored. Massive amounts of text are used detailing history and causes (which are interesting) while topics more relevant to educators such as diagnosis and teaching strategies are far less detailed. There are also many examples of political and cultural bias in the book that will leave new educators wondering why they are getting pushback from parents and community members if they speak on some disabilities the way that the book does. And even though my edition was printed in 2015, there are several errors I found regarding IDEA and Section 504 laws. There are many errors in the text. I'm not talking about typos, but entire lines of print that repeat themselves. I also did not like the formatting of the book. I understand that a lot of students may purchase an electronic copy of the book, making the hyperlinks that are embedded in the text easy to follow, but this is not the case if you have a print edition. Hyperlinks in the main text are written out, but links within captions or special focus sections are hidden under linked key words, making them completely unavailable to a reader. Even if I had an electronic copy I would prefer a section at the end with the links listed, because leaving in the middle of the text would probably lead me into hours of off-topic link-chasing, but that's just a personal preference.

    Pretty standard textbook. Each chapter follows a similar format so it is rather predictable. At times I found the subjects extremely interesting and other times I found them boring and redundant. One of my pet peeves is when a book says the same thing over and over again. I did end up learning a lot but would not recommend for light reading or in-depth study.

    I did not find this book a particularly helpful resource. It is heavy on anecdotes, which I understand is an important way to better understand a disability, but I find video interviews and resources (like F.A.T. City) much more helpful in this regard.

    Informative and comprehensive as far as reference texts go; however, it was at times poorly organized and structured.

    Zzzzzzz. Pretty standard textbook, I suppose. They could have included a lot more teaching methods and a lot less history, though.

    Seriously, this text has the most abstract, worst prose of any text I've ever read. I have a friend who prefers a poor grade to reading it. It is, however, very informative, with good politics.
