Price Value QualityAs someone who is very critical of educational books, I was very pleased to see how James and Kate captured the great challenges of education â€“ the personal and professional journey that is involved with engaging with deep and fundamental issues of learning.

A book to read, re-read and keep coming back to for advice.
