Buy this book

The one you can see here

Some of the early reviews (none of which are made up in any way):

"This is quite definitely the only and most exciting book I have ever read on the subject of Educational Management."

"I imagine Hollywood executives are, as we speak, fighting tooth and nail over the filming rights"

"I couldn't put it down. Though that may have something to do with this damned straightjacket"

"When the author asks, on page 101, "If the number of students per class is set at a maximum of 12, tuition is fixed at 75 per student, and all other variables remain the same, what number of students per class is needed to reach breakeven?" the reader is transported by the power of the words, the imagery conjured up, almost into the spreadsheet itself. I loved it."

(PS. Sorry I'm still not blogging that regularly. I'll do better in future. Promise)

"If the number of students per class is set at a maximum of 12, tuition is fixed at 75 per student, and all other variables remain the same, what number of students per class is needed to reach breakeven?"

is this question really asked in the book ? If it is, it might be worth to buy it ... if there were a digital version available. :) .

That question is really in the book, Emil. I quoted it directly.

No digital version unfortunately, but since it's published in Romania you ought to be able to find a copy fairly easily.

Professor Hockley's theories have raised the status of education management to an entirely new level. I know I speak for educators everywhere when I say that his book will be of lasting benefit to mankind.

The lengths that publishers are forced to go to these days to disguise good old-fashioned hardcore pornography. Bet it sells more than mine did.
