'Well edited and short, the essays are easy to read and fit in to a busy life...The honest and thoughtful reflections of the teachers provide a sense of hope that prosocial behaviour is achievable and not a dream!' - Youth in Mind

'It's easy to see why Bill Rogers is revered by generations of teachers across the world. The stories assembled here are compelling and reflective. They will provide a stimulus and support to teachers 'cutting and chipping themselves into the shape of the key which will have the merit of unlocking the minds and opening the hearts' of the pupils they teach. Bill's overview and commentary will as usual resonate with schools and teachers. It deserves a place along with his other books in the staff library. Any one of the case studies here, along with Bill's observations, could form the basis of any school working group examining the issue of 'behaviour'. It's bound to lead to an improvement among pupils parents and staff. And it will help teachers at the end of their tether both preserve their sanity and extend the tether!' - Sir Tim Brighouse, Advisor, Hamlyn Foundation and Visiting Professor, Institute of Education, University of London
