What Matters Most: 

A Collection of Pieces by Chris Woodhead

Chris Woodhead stimulated controversy and roused passions. He is best known as the Chief Inspector of Schools who demanded higher standards across the board. Admired and condemned in equal measure, he was forthright in his views and they became central to the national education debate.

But he was a courageous man who confronted taboos wherever they lay; his final challenge was with Motor Neurone Disease and death, which he confronted with an empathy and eloquence that struck a chord with many.

His education journalism is the core of this book but it also reflects his passions for literature and climbing, all written with the precision and clarity that became his hallmark. What Matters Most concludes with his fearless thoughts on assisted dying and with a challenge for people to be allowed to die with dignity at a time of their own choosing.
