Richard M. Gargiulo is currently a professor in the Department of Educational Leadership, Special Education, and Foundations at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). Prior to receiving his Ph. D. from the University of Wisconsin in educational psychology, Richard taught fourth graders as well as young children with mental retardation in the Milwaukee Public Schools. This textbook offers a comprehensive overview of special education and the vast diversity of students that a special education teacher would most likely encounter. I am not a special education teacher, but I needed the book for a diversity and inclusion class I took. What I like about the textbook is that it offers numerous viewpoints from the perspective of parents and the students themselves. Yes, it contains A LOT of information, but for someone that is aspiring to become a special education teacher, much of it will come in handy.

The book calls itself "An Introduction to Exceptionality" and does indeed provide a solid introduction. It looks at people and their abilities, disabilities, strengths, and needs. It talks about students This is a textbook, so naturally the writing can seem dry. I enjoyed this book, however, and found it highly informative and incredibly useful. It talks about students in the greater context of school, society, and families. It looks at programs, practices, laws, history, and educational considerations.

Richard Gargiulo and new co-author Emily Bouck encourage a deep awareness and understanding of the human side of special education.

Thsi text had some interesting information in it, but it was still needlessly verbose in some ways, and lacking real information in others. As a textbook that was required reading for a class I took, it was fair.

I received my book really fast which was a total surprise to me! I was expecting it to take at least a few weeks. So to my surprise today I got the email for me to give a review and I was totally shocked to see that the book I received looks ABSOLUTELY NOTHING like the book they want me to give feedback. The titles are the same but the cover is totally different AND the listing said it was a paperback but the one I received is definitely a HARDCOVER! I have not had to use the textbook yet in class but I will be VERY pissed if this is the WRONG book that was sent to me! Hopefully I will be able to use this book...it came sooo fast I was shocked.

The seller was polite and prompt so if things work out I will purchase from them again.

Unlike many textbooks, this one is easy to read. It has many interesting facts and figures placed in tables and graphs. Sometimes the information does not flow perfectly, but it still is a good read. I recommend it for all teachers, not just those in special education.

I have asthma, and I could not stand the smell of this book! It reeked of cigarettes and mildew. I had to wash my hands from the smell getting on my finders! The cover was torn; every page was nauseating. I am so sorry, but something had to be said about the conditions of this book.

I needed the book for a college course. It was listed as available but when I tried to buy it, it wasn't in stock. It took them a few days to get that message to me and it wasted time when I needed the book.
