Life is a thrilling adventure. Our children get only rare glimpses of the possibilities. To roam, to dare, to fail . . . these are the rights of children.

John Marsden, the award-winning, bestselling author of the Tomorrow series, has spent his life educating kids and teenagers. He is passionate about the need to prepare them in all ways for the demands of adulthood.

As the founder and principal of two schools – Candlebark and Alice Miller – John has put his theories to the test and seen the empowering results of his methods.

Take Risks is the compelling memoir of a revered author and educator, and a forthright discussion on teaching, parenting and society as a whole.
