"This is a great book which sets out the importance of self care for early career teachers but it is as relevant to those starting their career as those in the middle or coming to the end of their teaching career. It is an easy read book and has lots of case studies that teachers can identify directly with. Thank you for a no nonsense book which you can read from cover to cover or dip in and out of as the need arises."
