This is from the beginning of the preface to help potential readers determine if this is the book wanted:

"High/Low Handbook (in Bowker's Service Special Needs Series) is intended for teachers, librarians, and other individuals or institutions who must provide easy reading material for:

disabled -OR- reluctant teenage readers.

High/Low Handbook provides accessibility to the wide range of materials available to the student with poor reading skills and to those who work with them.

As used in this book, the term disabled reader refers to those teenagers who score on the fourth-grade level or below on reading tests;

reluctant readers are those who score above the fourth-grade reading level, and therefore have some reading skills, yet lack the motivation to read."
