From the reviews:"Ramaekers and Suissa's (R&S) book is a welcome addition to the growing literature on education within families. Ramaekers and Suissa have written a timely book. ... not only philosophers of education, but also policy makers, social workers, and scientists will read the book and take its message to heart ... . the book not only has a valuable contribution to make to policy and practice, but also shows that it is precisely philosophers of education who can make such a contribution." (Doret de Ruyter, Journal of Philosophy of Education, Vol. 47 (4), 2013)
