At last, a practical solution to help students take responsibility for their own progress and direction. This engaging story could be adapted for any age as it works on many levels, from its laugh-out-loud quips about educational motivation to the genuinely moving story of Gilbert's odyssey. 

If you work with young people and want to help them gain independent motivation, this is a scheme of work in a book! Gilbert's deceptively simple, entertaining story contains profound insights about how to feel self-belief and get things done. It will provoke rich discussions. Everyone needs a big MAD box.
