Nick named 'The Bible' at my University, this book has a comprehensive index and contents page. It also has a wonderful ability to link in with whatever assignment on education that you are set. It is jargon free, with subtitles and bullet points that let you gather information at a glance. The down side is that it is perhaps more geared towards secondary teaching rather than primary, nevertheless it is one of the only books that I won't be selling when I graduate.

From the Inside Flap
Chris Kyriacou not only knows how to communicate, but shows every evidence of understanding what classroom life is like.
Times Educational Supplement
One of the best general guides available for prospective teachers at both primary and secondary level.
Journal of Education for Teaching
The first edition of this enormously successful book examined the key skills required for successful classroom practice. Using his familiar and accessible style, Chris Kyriacou has now developed and expanded his work in this updated new edition.
Specifically, the book covers:
The nature and development of teaching skills
planning, preparing, presenting and managing lessons
classroom climate and discipline
assessing and evaluating pupils' and teacher's own performance
