A review of this publication appeared in SSR September 2012
'The book will be valuable in gently correcting the physics misconceptions that non-specialist and novice teachers sometimes bring to lessons. More experienced physics teachers will find novel slants to old favourites and alternative ways of explaining concepts.'
