Product description


A gem of a book that brings light to the way in which words are read and spelled. This is a very useful book for teachers, parents and anyone interested in bringing the joy of reading to our nation's children. --Dr. Reid Lyon, Distinguished Professor of Education Policy, Southern Methodist University

The thrust of this book might be better described if the title was changed to The Heartbreak of English: a Logical Means of Recovery. --Jack Blackburn, Retired 3M Engineer

Uncovering the Logic of English is a thoughtful guide for anyone who wants to understand language better or is looking for advice to help them teach it. --Midwest Book Review
