Review quote

Praise for previous editions:

'He is consciously reflective of day-to-day classroom experiences and this 'in touch with' dimension in his writings gives him credibility and encourages his readers to develop their own practice' - Mike O'Connor, The Psychology of Education Review, Vol. 27, No. 2, pp.44-45

'He presents with vivid authenticity - his stories are always a potent cocktail of pain and humour - tales of classroom and school challenge with which any practicing teacher immediately identifies' - Professor Sir Tim Brighouse, Times Educational Supplement

'Bill Rogers has inspired a generation of teachers through his books and lectures. He has the gift of credibility, talking to real teachers about real classrooms, and never patronising us' - Geoff Barton, Times Educational Supplement
