“As an online instructor, I really enjoyed reading this book! Johnson’s style is laced with humor–he knows how to connect with the reader. The book is written in a friendly, collegial manner as if we were sitting down over a cup of tea, discussing things like how to build a learning community in an online venue, how to encourage low-performing students, or how to write that exemplary email.” Amazon Review
