Review:

Michael Barber is a source of inspiration and wisdom (Andrew Adonis New Statesman)

Sir Michael Barber is the man who can unlock the secrets of turning promises into action (John Rentoul Independent)

[Barber's] advice can be refreshingly ruthless . . . this account of a potentially dry subject has an uplifting brio to it (Economist)

More fun to read than a book on the reform of the welfare system in Michigan has any right to be . . . Barber is the global overlord of public policy (Philip Collins Prospect)

About the Author:

He served as advisor to the UK Prime Minister from 2001-5 and is a global expert on education reform and the implementation of large-scale system change.
