"With a focus on the demands of a new century, the information revolution, and the need to help young people find their own learning powers and passions, Guy Claxton reveals the true essence of education. Enjoy the book - and remember the point of school: to open hearts and unlock minds." --Mick Waters, Director of Curriculum, UK Qualification and Curriculum Authority
"The book has much worth, not least for its eloquent and powerful critique of today's educational malaise." --Ink Pellet
"Why is our current school system failing so many children? How can we best educate the next generation to face the challenges of the 21st century? Professor Claxton provides a masterly analysis of what's wrong with education and how we can put it right. Every parent, teacher, and politician should read this book."
