I’ve taken a long time over this book but it has been fascinating and very thought provoking. I thoroughly recommend it to anyone working in the education system.

Excellent treatment of research in cognitive psychology and the implications for teaching and learning. Witty, sometimes sharp, but always thought provoking. You may not agree with everything, but you will be challenged to think.

Thought provoking and sometimes opinionated, but thoroughly backed by research. A must-read for aspiring teachers or people with a general interest in education!

Yet another guru with another armchair concept. Mandatory schooling? Charged curricula? Stressful exams? That is nothing to Didau. Make it harder! Punish the sinners to get better (dead) angels.
