"Release Your Inner Drive is an excellent guide to understanding how to improve."
Mary Myatt, education adviser, speaker and author of Hopeful Schools

"By using a lot of the techniques in this book I have become a more successful person... The techniques are simple but they have had a massive impact, it’s almost hard to believe."
Jordanne Whiley, MBE, winner of 9 Grand Slam tennis tournaments and Paralympic medalist

"This advice is evidence-based and has been distilled from high-quality research in cognitive psychology and neuroscience. I have never come across a clearer explanation for students of how to handle the complexities of motivation, mindset and performance."
Jonnie Noakes, Head of Teaching and Learning at Eton College

Seductively readable and yet also impressively evidence-based, this beautifully produced book represents an exceptional distillation of research around motivation. It’s a tough art to keep the message simple without straying into the simplistic badlands, or risk patronising a hyper-vigilant teenaged audience, and the authors carry this off remarkably well. Time-starved teachers will find much classroom-ready material to use here too."
Dr Barry Hymer, Emeritus Professor of Psychology in Education, University of Cumbria
