Great book. Richard writes with a raw, but fresh, style that really entertains the reader. The tips are really useful and easy to follow. Illustrations are good and the book is fully supported by his active blog, with makes the book a 'key' to a much larger bank of resources.

Quick Guide to Classroom Management is a refreshing new book that includes many personal stories, humour and a plethora of tips on how to build rapport with your students to help you manage your classes.

It is raw, honest and sometimes cringeworthy in terms of the stories that highlight what not to do, or how not to behave as a teacher.

Each chapter ends with a summary and a series of questions for the reader, which I feel tests your understanding of the chapter but gives you the opportunity to take notes and build on any ideas you have whilst reading.

The language is kept simple, making the book easy to read and understand, unlike some other teaching books that are full of jargon completely new to many trainee teachers and NQTs.

It the book also contains beautiful illustrations that help bring the book alive and you can genuinely feel that the time and effort that went into this book comes from the heart.

I would recommend this book to any trainees and NQTs, but also to experienced teachers who may be in need of fresh ideas.

This book has reassured me that I am on the right track in certain aspects of my teaching but also given me plenty of new ideas to try once I get back in the classroom and I can't wait to take this book forward with me!
