This book is well written and well organized. Each chapter includes a summary, tables are given throughout to draw comparisons among studies, and studies that are discussed in more than one place are cross-referenced. It will prove a quite useful resource for those conducting research in the domain of teacher cognition. In addition, the framework Borg offers could inform future research by providing a coherent paradigm and by engendering collaborative work. The book is also of value to teacher trainers, who will be interested in understanding the influences of preservice training on actual classroom practices.
