`Another textbook about learning in the post-compulsory sector: fortunately, this one has an abundant supply of a quality that is often lacking in such books: thoughtful originality, backed up by meaningful experience on the part of the author. The book as a whole is mercifully free of unnecessary jargon (a point that the author points out in the preface), and is accessible and friendly in tone. Race′s "ripples on a pond" model… is effortlessly applicable to a range of learning and teaching situations and provides a useful tool for exploring teaching and learning practice′ - ESCalate `Professor Race… is without a doubt a master of intelligent simplicity. [This] book may seem to be innocent of theory, but a serious understanding of the needs of learners is clear behind every page. The approach is to make sense of the collated feedback from thousands of students and teachers, gleaned by questions asked during workshops and seminars. There is an enormous amount of practical, useful material in this book. It is replete with lists, charts, bullet points, pithy hints, and guidelines. I will not be in the least surprised if this book is a runaway success′ - Anita Pincas, Lifelong Education and International Development, Institute of Education, London ′Phil Race freely shares his experience and his wise counsel in a text where he emerges from the pages as a clear thinking, clear writing, expert in this field, with much to offer′ - John Cowan, Emeritus Professor of Learning Development, the Open University
