In this book Dornyei has provided an all-in-one text about motivation. He discusses the theory behind motivation, how to increase motivation in students and teachers, and how to research motivation. It is particularly important to review the literature on motivation because so much of what goes on in the classroom and outside of the classroom depends on the motivation of the students and teachers. In particular, I found the information on grooup dynamics as a factor in motivation to be very useful. By building a sense of community or a sense of belonging, one can also build motivation in others, which leads to a more active and engaged class. This books is particularly for language teachers, but I think all teachers will be able to learn something from this book. Check it out.
It is the perfect book if you are doing research about motivation and/or engagement. I am about to finish my PhD thesis, and it is being really helpful! I wish I though about getting it sooner. Emma
