'Exceptional value for money. It covers the whole range of roles and responsibilities that local authorities address, and I have no doubt this content will assist all child care social workers acting as 'agents' of the local authority to practice efficiently, effectively and above all safely. I could go on - but go and buy the book and see for yourself.'
