'Clearheaded, acutely perceptive, and utterly lucid, this is the one book about education which everyone can and should make time to read.' - Randall Curren, University of Rochester, USA
'This is a clearly structured and thought-out book…It’s polemical but also introduces the reader to key arguments and issues.' - Stephen Law, Royal Institute of Philosophy
