'This is a very good book indeed, both timely and necessary…. Bennett writes with humour, style, understanding, a massive amount of common sense and not a little wisdom. And how often do you use those words in an educational context?' --Times Educational Supplement
'a jargon-free, unpatronising, highly browsable and accessible set of responses and suggested solutions to common classroom management issues…if you want an instant answer without having to wade through pages of search results, other people's mis'spelled comments on the forum, or just a reminder that you are not alone in the big bad world of behaviour, you would do well to turn to this book which seems, like Mr Bennett himself (and perhaps that really annoying kid who sits near the back in 9X4), to have an answer for everything... a book that no self-respecting staff room or faculty office should be without… our Behaviour Guru hovers, like a guardian angel, ready to gently reassure, redirect and reintroduce classroom Zen.' --Jenny Turner, Journal of Trainee Teacher Educational Research, UK

If you're a new teacher, I can see this being quite useful. However as a teacher hitting the 5 year mark, I found the advice useless and quite often blasé. No depth, no theory and only experience backing up the comments and no real life examples of where he'd experienced something similar. The tone of the book is also too friendly as opposed to being informative and isn't supportive of teachers in the classroom unless slt is mentioned. Some questions he also answered with a joke as he believed they weren't genuine questions. There are very few actionable solutions in this book to support teachers in managing their classroom.
Will not be a helpful read to anyone that isn't an NQT or trainee, and even then there are much better books on behaviour to read or recommend to those colleagues.

Not a lot here that experienced teachers won't already know, and a bit too much hype.Published 3 months ago by Mr. J. J. Bald
This book is fairly interesting read, however I think Sue Cowley's Getting the buggers to behave or Bill Rogers' Classroom Management are much better investments.Published 5 months ago by Amazon Customer
Justifies his ideas with pop behaviourism. Doesn't actually understand behaviourism.
The same answer to every problem. At least he's consistent...
I got this book free from the NUT (not by request!) And all I can say it is the most depressing book I've ever read! Read morePublished 12 months ago by Fiona Carter
