    I agree with many of the approaches/ideas/concepts discussed and disagree with others, but the main problem was that it was so repetitive. The same statement/opinion was stated, sometimes using the same language, in more than one place. This became frustrating as it began to feel like padding.

    This book bears a striking resemblance to Rosenshine's principles in that it gives a bolshy middle finger to flowery langauge and complex theories. It will reasonate with those who are on-board with the recent return to knowledge-rich and traditional teaching styles. Strickland has little time for learning objectives, differentiated tasks, flight paths or multiple data drops. And he makes that abundantly clear. He recognises that teaching is an incredibly challenging profession and seems genuinel This book bears a striking resemblance to Rosenshine's principles in that it gives a bolshy middle finger to flowery langauge and complex theories. It will reasonate with those who are on-board with the recent return to knowledge-rich and traditional teaching styles. Strickland has little time for learning objectives, differentiated tasks, flight paths or multiple data drops. And he makes that abundantly clear. He recognises that teaching is an incredibly challenging profession and seems genuinely committed to bypassing the plethora of time-consuming fads of recent years. He does raise some straw man arguments and rides roughshod over certain concepts without giving them sufficient analysis. However I do think his ideas are overwhelmingly for the postive. And the fact that his message is delivered in just 92 pages is testament to his teaching philosophy. I'd love to work for a head like this.

    I loved this book. Short and to the point (a refreshing change) with much that resonated. I liked that I could read it in one day. There will be some ideas that you disagree with in this book, in all likelihood. I know I did but I like that it made me think about WHY I disagreed. for a common sense approach to school improvement, this is well worth a read.

    Quick read. Sound sensible advice that all sounds obvious enough. Easier said than done.

    Interesting and relevant comments on leadership, if anything too concise at times.

    An absolute must read for any Heads or aspiring heads/senior leaders. Refreshingly blunt and to the point whilst clear suggestions and guidance on how to make things better!
