  • This is a brilliant book. At workshops over the last twenty years, I have listened to teachers swapping suggestions about course books, and at last here is a book that provides everything you need under one cover. It will become absolutely standard for English B teachers everywhere; any thoughtful teacher can treat this book as a kind of mini training course in good teaching practice. - David Ripley, English B Consultant, InThinking
  • I think it covers the topics very nicely and aligns with the new IB program in so many aspects such as themes, connection with TOK, and new Written Assignments. I definitely find it a great choice for teachers as it saves a lot of time from planning and choosing relevant articles that students will find attractive. Also the types of exercises are very well structured and challenging enough for students to find a balance between text analysis and reflection of the issues presented. - Carmen Benítez, Head of Languages Department & English B Senior Examiner, Tecnologico
