‘This divergent-thinking book is a must read for all who want real, sustainable and effective reform for learning for this century; it should be embedded in the syllabi of colleges of education and education graduate studies worldwide.’ – Dr Earle Warnica, Professor of Education at the American University of Ras Al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates
‘This book is a stunner. Writing in an entertaining, page turning style, Ian Gilbert engages the reader with some powerful ideas about learning and teaching … He inspires us to consider the role of the teacher not as the fount of knowledge but as someone who helps children to learn.’ – Sara Bubb, Senior Lecturer at the Institute of Education, London
‘In his inimitable style, laced with humour and wisdom, Ian Gilbert makes neuroscience reachable, digestible and, above all, applicable to classroom practice … He proposes a new moral purpose for education – to play a central role in the creation of a society in which you would want your own grandchildren to live. It will become compulsory reading. I couldn’t put it down.’ – Sir John Jones, Presenter, Writer and Educational Consultant
