REVIEWS OF THE PREVIOUS EDITION:
"Presents a broad and deep overview of what psychologists have accomplished in the past couple of decades in understanding how language works... It summarizes an amazingly large body of experimental research very clearly, within a framework that lets readers decide that they know more about how words are read than they did before they read the chapter."
