This is a magnificent book. It is brief, devourable and rich in both its erudition and thought-provoking ideas. As soon as I had finished it for the first time, I immediately began again… This is a book which can be read at a number of different levels and where the author’s love of and deep knowledge about his subject shines through every page.—Bob Burden, British Journal of Educational Psychology

Clarifies for the contemporary reader just how Vygotsky’s thought evolved, in clear, precise language that makes Vygotsky’s work accessible to novices. Kozulin gives us a fresh perspective on Vygotsky’s key concept of psychological tools by showing how it works in classrooms filled with children from radically different cultures.—Jane E. Knox-Voina, Bowdoin College

Kozulin has established himself as a significant interpreter of Vygotsky, and Psychological Tools makes a major contribution to our ability to think in psychological terms about what actually happens in the process of education.—Sheldon White, Harvard University
