It currently looks like my new book, The Truth about Teaching: An evidence-informed guide for new teachers, will be released on the 11th August in the UK and Australia, although the US Amazon site is stating September. Amazon have a feature where you can ‘look inside’ a book and Tunya Audain left a comment on yesterday’s post, pointing out that this is now up and running for The Truth. You can view it on either the UK or US Amazon sites. For some reason, the Australian Amazon site is not listing my book.
The preview captures the preface, acknowledgements and the first section of the first chapter, which is a brief history of education. Hopefully, this will give you a feel for the book and whether you think it is worth purchasing.
I had been worrying a little about what people would think about The Truth, but this has faded in the last few weeks. Without doubt, there are some people who will not like it on principle and there’s not much I can do about that. The real test is whether new teachers, and perhaps parents or others who want a way in to understanding education, find it useful. If they do, then it has been a success.
