In a library or bookshop filled with books giving 'tips for teachers' on how to deal with 'naughty children', this book is a refreshing change. It places children into a rounded context and helps us to understand how environment (especially the adults) around a child can make a huge impact on his or her behaviour.
Another appealing aspect of this book is its focus on the positive. So few conversations or texts look at what happens when an intervention goes well and a child's behaviour improves. Miller considers why we don't talk about our successes and gives some insight into what does make for an effective intervention to change classroom behaviour.
This book left me feeling optimistic that, if we look at children's behaviour as a product not just of their own problems but also of the environment around them, we can find ways to include all children in our classrooms - even 'the naughty ones'! An excellent read for teachers, educational psychologists and educational policymakers.

This is a really well written book, covering key issues affecting teachers.
Appears well researched; good psychologically sound principles put across in an easy to access way. I felt enthused reading it.
Certainly given me lots of ideas for supporting teachers in my role of an Educational Psychologist.
