“Danny Holland’s book Reaching Teens in Their Natural Habitat is a must-read. I have been encouraged and impressed by Danny’s teaching for many years. In the thirty years that I have taught media literacy, I have encountered many media-lit teachers and speakers. Danny, however, stands out. His teaching is effective, profound, and solid. I read every page of his book and plan to read it again and again!”
