    According to some current wisdom, reading is an unnatural act that must be taught methodically and systematically. In this version updated to consider recent political and commercial attitudes, Smith (education, formerly U. of Toronto, etc.) argues that both reading and learning to read are natural activities and not exercises in decoding language from the page to sound. He describes how he understands what learning to be a reader is all about, the limitations of the phonics method, the ways in which our brains understand reading as a natural activity, the role of memory, the relationship of language and meaning, the art and science of constructing a theory of the reading world, the interaction of letters and words with meaning, the process of inclusion and the importance of teachers in it, and the fables that are causing children to fail in learning to read.

    In this thought-provoking book, Frank Smith explains how schools and educational authorities systematically obstruct the powerful inherent learning abilities of children, creating handicaps that often persist through life. The author eloquently contrasts a false and fabricated "official theory" that learning is work (used to justify the external control of teacher's and students through excessive regulation and massive testing) with a correct but officially suppressed "classic view" that learning is a social process that can occur naturally and continually through collaborative activities. This book will be crucial reading in a time when national authorities continue to blame teachers and students for alleged failures in education. It will help educators and parents to combat sterile attitudes toward teaching and learning and prevent current practices from doing further harm.
