‘This text is invaluable for any student or psychologist looking to expand their understanding of psychological concepts as they relate to education. I cannot praise this book enough for its superb depth and breadth of information, and how it integrates real world scenarios to help develop meaning for the reader.' Diahann Gallard, Senior Lecturer, Liverpool John Moores University, UK
"This book should not be on anyone's bookshelves - it should be at teachers' and students teachers' sides to revitalise and to clarify their professional principles and practice" - School Science Review, June 2011
