Ever since graduating we have always kept in contact or even worked together. We have the utmost respect for each others attributes. Mr Moutrey has written this book for the students he teaches. He has written it with desire and passion, exactly the same way he teaches always engaging. I have no problem endorsing this book and I will be adopting it into my own students reading list as I think it is simple to read, direct and very precise about academic skills. I believe there is a large market for this type of literature as nothing has come out in recent years which is easy to follow and stay engaged with. I fully support and endorse this book.Phil Ashwell MA (Ed) BSc (Hons) FHEA PgCert CODP HCPC
