Peter Bryant illustrates the power of collaboration between psychology and education when theory is tested in the classroom and results challenge and shape the theory. The book has a strong impact both on the quality of research and the practice of teaching reading--all this in less than 170 pages.

From the Publisher
Editors Note A surprisingly large number of otherwise `normal' children have problems learning to read, and these difficulties can produce disastrous consequences. Can we isolate the causes of reading problems? How can we best help backward readers? Peter Bryant and Lynette Bradley, in a trenchant and convincingly argued critique, show that many of the existing psychological explanations of reading problems are based on flawed research and on entirely inadequate evidence.
