-- Daisy Christodoulou
Greg Ashman changed my life. I was introduced to his blog via Dylan Wiliam, and Greg’s subsequent interview on my Mr Barton Maths Podcast in 2017 left me and thousands of listeners questioning everything in teaching that we had previous taken for granted. It took me 12 years to think deeper about the the way I planned lessons, the things I did in the classroom, how I marked books, and many other things. The Truth about Teaching is the book I wished I’d had all those years ago.
-- Craig Barton
...Ashman admits that "teaching cannot claim to be evidence-based ... Instead, we can hope to be evidence-informed." It′s a welcome admission that cognitive models and large scale meta-analyses might not tell us everything about what goes on in the classroom, and sets the tone for the rest of this detailed and absorbing book. -- George Duoblys ― Schools Week
New and aspiring teachers will find this book gives valuable insights. The author′s extensive background in teaching means he writes from an informed and empathetic viewpoint, giving his readers confidence. An understanding of educational research is demonstrated, along with the most vital ideas necessary to succeed in teaching... It′s a practical book, firmly rooted in actual classroom experience with real children - it′s just what teachers will encounter and therefore reassuring and positive to use and apply. -- Sarah Brew ― Parents in Touch --This text refers to the paperback edition.

It debunks well-ingrained myths on what works on education, such as the inquire-based education myth, but it's essentially positive, showing what works and why.
