Thank you. | At last: common sense!REVIEWS OF BOOKS BY M J BROMLEY: Outstanding | Invaluable stuff” | “Sensible, pragmatic” | “Really informative” | “So good my headteacher has disappeared with it” | “A great book” | “A must-buy | “Superbly practical” | “Convincing, compelling”ABOUT THIS BOOK: This book is a collection of 16 essays on teaching and learning, politics and parenthood, leadership and life.

In these essays you will discover: what makes a great teacher and why they deserve long holidays- why January is the cruellest month- how to improve school sport- what makes a great leader and how they manage change- why nurture - not nature - holds the key to academic success- why a loss of autonomy does not mean a loss of professionalism- what makes Finnish education so successful- why becoming a father turns you into a cold-blooded killer- why and how parents should read bedtime stories- and why those who can, teach - those who cant, become Secretary of State for Education.At the dawn of this millennium, the author of these essays had an epiphany: he woke up and realised his working life was meaningless.

He was a faceless doll working in a grey room in a grey building with grey people. He needed to rebrand. He needed purpose. And so it was a brand new millennium and a new brand him. He was going to be a teacher. He was going to inspire young people just as his teachers had inspired him. On becoming a teacher he found that it was tough but it was tough because it mattered- it was tough because teachers did something important, they improved the world around them one person at a time. This may sound like hyperbole, it may be gilding the lily somewhat- but it is fundamentally true.

Because teachers have the best job in the world and they change lives. Teachers are fantastic. They matter. They do a job which many other people could and would not do. And this book is the authors eulogy to teachers the world over. So take it and read it as your reward.

You deserve it.ABOUT THE AUTHOR: M J Bromley is an experienced school and college leader, and an education writer and consultant. He’s the author of several best-selling books including: Leadership for Learning, The IQ Myth, How to Become a School Leader, and Teach. He edited the hugely popular SPaG Book.
