From the reviews:

"In her new book, Brodie surveys the methods and dilemmas involved in promoting mathematical reasoning among students who bring and have access to different kinds of resources for their mathematics learning. ... Her book is crafted in such a way that it is while written primarily for mathematics educators, it also speaks eloquently to teachers through the case studies, and to policymakers through concise and coherent summaries." (Victoria Hand, Educational Studies in Mathematics, Vol. 79, 2012)

"This book is timely and inspiring for teachers, researchers and teacher educators. ... this book is a valuable resource. It contributes to our developing understanding of mathematical reasoning and the way in which mathematics tasks and the practices of teachers promote students' mathematical reasoning. ... The book provides a strong foundation for further research of learners' mathematical reasoning and the teaching of mathematical reasoning and will inspire other mathematics teachers to research their practice." (Colleen Vale, The International Journal on Mathematics Education, Vol. 44, 2012)
