'Your "Planning" book is brilliant. I read it on train journeys to and from London this week after I had attended the south-east regional training event for KS3 planning last Tuesday, run by CfBT. I'm no longer in a position where I will have to write a new geography scheme of work, but I will find your book enormously helpful in explaining the new curriculum to my PGCE students, who will be contributing to the new curriculum.

Thanks for a very, very helpful publication.'
