I am particularly grateful to Sally Brown, not only for making sure that I got down to writing this book, and contributing a number of key ideas, but also for her very valuable and insightful comments on draft versions. I also thank Shona Mullen of Open University Press, for continued encouragement and patience, and for valuable suggestions on seeing the completed manuscript of the book, and the anonymous referees whose comments on my book proposal did much to improve the content and format.
I am also grateful to the many thousands of full-time and part-time students I have worked with over the years on study-skills development programmes, and to thousands of their lecturers and tutors that I have worked with on their development of teaching methodologies, learning facilitation and assessment design. In all of this work I continue to learn more about learning itself, and have tried to share all of this in this book.
