Comprehensive book covering all aspects of home education in the UK. Legal information, philosophies of home education, references to research, methods of home educating, and the strange issue of socialisation.

As a home educator for nine years myself, I don't think I found anything new in this book, but would very much have liked something like this when I was starting out. Recommended highly to anyone considering home education, or wanting to know more about it, or worried that they might not be able to cope.

The 'teach yourself' format was a little irritating at times, with 'top tip' boxes and 'key points' at the end of each chapter. But overall, I was very impressed.

Four and a half stars, really.
