Helping Adolescents in School

By Tony Branwhite | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

The inspiration for writing this book came, like the headwaters of a river, from several different sources. In particular, however, I would like to thank the many young people, teachers, parents, and colleagues who have taught me things that I might otherwise have missed completely. Some of the insights that they felt able to share with me came from hard-won experience, and this helped me to realize that none of us holds the full deck of cards when trying to understanding the adolescent experience.

Many researchers readily responded to requests for information from me, a complete stranger. Their generosity in helping me to gain greater awareness of significant developments in the field is a kindness for which I am deeply grateful. Also, my editor, Nita Romer, and producer, John Beck, stimulated more rapid action on my part than might otherwise have been the case.

Last, but not least, my wife Jo was able to contend with my need to disappear frequently and write into the wee hours and kindly tolerated lapses of attention in the middle of normal conversation, while I fell momentarily into thinking about some current aspect of the manuscript. Perhaps this book was unwittingly a labor of love for both of us!
