Review quote

'it deserves rapidly to find a prominent and well-thumbed place in all staffroom libraries as well as in schools of education' - Keith Saunders, British Journal of Educational Technology Praise for the previous edition: 'A small number of education books feel indispensable; this is warmly welcomed to the club. It's a magnificent survey of what educational research can tell us about nitty-gritty classroom issues' - Geoff Barton, Times Educational Supplement, Friday Magazine
