This book comes at a time when education has more pressures than ever and is a timely reminder about why many of us joined the profession in the first place. Love to Teach is jam-packed full of reference, research and resources that will impact upon teachers new to the profession or those who have more years under their belt. What is superb to see is the inclusion not only in examples throughout the book but also with a section that looks specifically at technology in education. Too many educators see 'edtech' as something separate to their practice. It isn't and Jones has rightly included selected teaching and learning ideas both with and without technology, just as it should be in any classroom.
