I teach adult basic education to a wide range of students and found I could use this with all groups. I found that "Chance of a Lifetime" held their attention; it was interesting; something all could relate to in one way or another; easy enough to read for themselves. The questions weren't all factual, requiring yes/no answers, but there was a lot of thinking to be done - something that my learning disability students don't always do much of for themselves! The chapter length was just right for a 2hr. session. Plenty of time for reading, talking, thinking, answering - and wondering what was coming next !
I ordered 'Chance of a Lifetime' and the Exercises some time ago. It is so very good. Many of my basic students confess to never reading for pleasure and we have a large selection of adult easy readers. This book has been the most popular of all. Lots of students said they read it straight through without stopping to do the exercises it was so good. Some said it was the first book they had ever read.
