Dr Gillie Bolton is an international authority on writing and author of a long publication list including nine books (one in 4th Edition), academic papers (many in top ranking journals), as well as professional articles, poetry, and for a lay readership. She has peer-reviewed for many journals and has been a long serving editor of an academic and two professional journals.
'The text is liberally sprinkled with quotations and references from practitioners, scholars, philosophers and key thinkers...Bolton's overall argument is persuasive; anyone involved in the academic world or in a 'thinking' profession would find it hard to challenge the suggestion that the process of writing
is developmental, helping to identify gaps in knowledge and adding to the journey of
exploration of one's assumptions, ideas and knowledge'

'A student of mine said that this book not only made him understand how to use reflective method with international perspectives, but opened up his postgraduate studies in many positive directions. I can think of no higher praise for a text that remains both core and contemporary and encourages professional creativity not only for teacher trainees and for students at Masters and Doctoral levels in Education but across many other subject areas' - Richard Race, Senior Lecturer, Roehampton University, UK
