Reviews

"... Jenny Fox Eades provides a scholarly and imaginative account of well-being as a way of being, in schools, a part of the fabric of the school, essential to the inter-generational encounter that justifies all schooling. How we (should) think and how we (should) care - for the people and for what we study - are described in all their fascinating complexity. Thanks to this book, well-being can be a lens through which all education can be critiqued, and good education can be encouraged."
