Praise and Reviews

"I really found the advice on Staring At Everyone Causing Chaos as a strategy for essay writing quite brilliant and so did my students. On the WJEC Board, the essays are divided into (a) explanation and analysis and (b) evaluation so the advice for OCR students still worked a treat, slightly modified, then laminated. The best part is the 'I would argue...' technique rather than couching all views in the passive, academic way - 'it could be argued that...' This instantly restored confidence and helped my sixth formers to remember why they do this subject and to take independent control of the evaluations, after they have been taken through the detailed, often difficult ideas of the famous, named philosophers and theologians. They are back in the driving seat."

"This is an incredibly useful guide, my year 12 ethics students will certainly benefit from this book."

"Fabulous book. Easy to use.Very good value."

"Exactly what I was looking for!"

"I am only a student at A2 but retaking AS level as I was a grade short of an A and need one for my offers. Writing essays was my problem but this book in how to write them is exactly what I've been looking for as it explains it so well and has examples. Philosophical investigations is the most useful resource I have to getting good grades and is incredibly helpful. When I saw they sold these books I was amazed and the sample chapter showed how thorough they were yet easy to grasp and well written"
