    "This book highlights, very appropriately, why thinking needs improving in schools. It illustrates, in a variety of ways, how teachers could encourage their pupils in thought-provoking debates....This book would be a useful resource to anyone involved in teaching philosophy, citizenship or subject-specific thinking." British Journal of Educational Studies
