“This is an uplifting text. It is a text that made me want to read more and run back into a school and teach. The possibilities are endless. Paul has hit upon a style, content and pacing that will engage teachers and students alike. The language is accessible and avoids the pretentious cliches we see so often these days. Activities are lively, engaging and demand inquiry, curiosity and creativity. The lives of students will be forever different after experiencing this text, the lessons learned will stand them in good stead wherever they go after school. The themes are relevant, well-explained, often humorous, and reinforced with varied activities. Will students develop all of the attributes of the IB learner profile through engaging with this text? Maybe, maybe not. But they will certainly be able to dissect the profile and explore its relevance to their lives.”

—Submitted by Malcolm Nicolson - Director of Erimus Education; former Head of MYP Development and Head of DP Development at the IB
