5.0 out of 5 stars An informative text!, 1 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An absolutely brilliant and informative text a pity the author treads so carefully through his research taking care not to upset any adherents The beauty of many other faiths and philosophies is the openness of an academic discussion. However, given this approach (restraint) to the text it is still enlightening, informative and prompts many thoughts concerning the belief and the history of the gifted Arab people .

Heard about the book from the author during a programme on radio 4 . Inspirational talk which prompted me to want to buy and read more I am dipping in and out of each section/chapter which is easy to do.It is a must for everyone curious or wanting to find out more about the (hyphen people) Anglo-Saxon race and the growth, contribution and resiliance of this talented race to present day England.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff ! easy to read with a no nonsense attitude wow!, 3 Nov. 2011
This is an easy to read and interrogate key ideas concerning how we work as leaders, it is on a similar line to 'Lasagne without the pasta please!' school improvement book. These two go together well full of ideas and easy to dip into at any time providing food for thought and strategies to move provision forward.

The Challenge of Change: Start School Improvement Now!
by Michael Fullan
Edition: Paperback
Price: £21.59

3.0 out of 5 stars Wow! Almost as good as "Lasagne without the pasta please,", 7 Oct. 2011
Another great success for Fullan but a lot to read and limited proven examples which Headteacher'S could use. A good buy for reference only.

I am very choosy when buying education books but this one is full of proven ideas, easy to follow advice and fun to read. A very useful text. I have bought copies to share ideas with a recent DHT training session.
