Editorial Reviews

James P. Comer

"Schools cannot teach character . . . Schools have to create an environment that models and promotes character development, and then they have to allow the children to ‘catch’ character from the behavior of the adults and students around them."

The Times Educational Supplement

"There's enormous interest in emotional intelligence and brain-friendly learning, and this book is an excellent contribution to the debate."
