    This book was truly remarkable. Its basis was this: sometimes you have to make waves and be professionally and productively disobedient. He uses powerful stories that are both funny and heartbreaking to tell his story. However, it is not a education text book or a self help book. It is a text that will inspire and challenge you to be disobedient.

    A lot of me saying yes while feeling simultaneously encouraged and disheartened.

    A selection of sincere and sensible ideas to empower change in the context of systems of over-assessment and power imbalance. Ings', a man with a lifetime's experience, peppers his story-telling with a series of effective anecdotes. While I was left a little unconvinced by the applicability of his business leadership ideas in schooling I know a book's to my liking when I shout out in surprise or fervour in its reading.

    This is the best book about teaching I've read. There's a lot of very good stuff to try here, including lots about Creativity and how to teach kids to be more creative. But it's also about more than teaching. It's about Education, and within a sociological/political context. Welby gets it. This is the best book about teaching I've read.

    Really interesting content - he tells stories well. However, I think the book could have been more carefully structured? I'd love to hear him speak.....

    To those who have stayed in the system and resisted it’s power to crush and mould us into drones. A system that devalues creativity and passion. This inspirational book is for you. A must read.

    Great messages well told with stories, one of which made me cry remembering what a lovely, safe place teachers created for me.

    I love books like this that rattle the cage and push the educational mind set into orbit! Any conversation and dialogue shared that turns the educational framework upside down and incites some subversive thinking is positive. Those who have been in the education industry for many decades as I have been will be aware of its failure, not dismissing the significant successes, of so many of our students who are legally compelled to be enlightened within the straightjacket of school education until t I love books like this that rattle the cage and push the educational mind set into orbit! Any conversation and dialogue shared that turns the educational framework upside down and incites some subversive thinking is positive. Those who have been in the education industry for many decades as I have been will be aware of its failure, not dismissing the significant successes, of so many of our students who are legally compelled to be enlightened within the straightjacket of school education until they are 16 years of age! Ing has contributed immensely to timely and provocative dialogue as to how we can do better within the educational monolith that we work with at present. Looking forward to his workshop in Nelson early July.
