Here's what you say about us...

TES Book of the Week, September 2002
'To say that this is a thought-provoking book is a tautology, for it's written by a thinker who bestows upon readers the compliment that they are thinkers too. It's a brilliant reminder, too, that psychology doesn't have all the answers.' -
