‘Here’s a ‘Pearl and Dean’ trailer for a forthcoming multimedia presentation on the subtleties and urgencies of improving schools. All school leaders will want to have this easy-to-read skinny. If I were still a school system leader, I would buy a copy for every school, just as I did of Fullan’s original ‘What’s woth fighting for..’ and 'Leading in a culture of Change' books. Fullan defies the odds and gets even better with age. Mind you, I can’t wait for the multi-media version of Motion Leadership."

Tim Brighouse, Former Commisssioner of London Schools, England

"Fullan has done it again. The book opens up new worlds for school and system leaders. A giant leap forward that has path-breaking implications for educational leadership and the difference it can make to student achievement."

Bill Hogarth, Director of Education
York Region District School Board, ON, Canada
