Review quote

'[An] impressively accessible and imposing book... Part 1 can be read as a very useful general introduction to the Steiner Waldorf approach, whilst the remainder of the book is more of a handbook rather than a cover-to-cover read - but it is no less useful or engaging for that. The book will serve as a very useful resource for parents as well as for teachers... It is difficult to imagine a more comprehensive contemporary overview of Steiner Waldorf education than this... This is surely one book that the contemporary Steiner teacher, of whatever age group or level of experience, will find it essential to have on her or his book shelf.'
-- Richard House, New View
