We Use Our Words


If you’ve got something to say, write a Tweet. If you’ve got something to share, write a blog. If you’ve got something to change, write a book.


Over the last two decades we have not only written some of the best-selling educational books in the country, we've also raised the bar about what an education book should be like. 

With award-winning titles including Ian Gilbert's The Little Book of Thunks, recipient of the Society of Author's inaugural Educational Writers' Award to Hywel Roberts' Oops! Helping Children Learn Accidentally, winner of the Primary, Secondary and Tertiary Education Book Award at the British Book Design and Production Awards and finalist in the Education Resources Awards for the Best Educational Book to Jim Smith's The Lazy Teacher's Handbook, also a finalist in the Education Resources Awards in the Educational Book Award category and, most recently, Juliet Robertson's Messy Maths, a Gold Winner in the IBPA Benjamin Franklin Awards in the education category.

And then there are our collaborative books, such as the two Big Books of Independent Thinking, and our most recent one, The Working Class, a vast tome, described as a 'game changer' when it comes to teaching and supporting children from our most deprived socio-economic backgrounds.

All our books are available in e-format but, we have to say, there is nothing like the smell and feel of a brand-new book in your hands is there.

What's more, because of our close links with the publisher, Crown House, we have negotiated a great deal for all our clients. 

When you buy our books direct from the Independent Thinking Press website, use the code SPRING30 at the checkout and you'll get a special 30% off deal with free UK postage.

Words can change worlds and we are very proud of the world-changing words you'll find in all our books.
