As a British Headteacher, I have been given a new insight and understanding from this book about the cultural challenges faced by our Yoruba pupils. The practical suggestions offered will enable stronger partnerships between home and school. An essential read for all our staff.

Not only is 'My Culture' a fascinating and detailed analysis of the Yoruba culture, it is also a very accessible read and hard to put down. As a headteacher, working with Yoruba families every day, the book has had a profound influence on my own behaviour in how I deal with the complexities and nuances of sustaining positive relationships working within a diverse community.

As a Nigerian raised in Britain, this book has given me a whole new insight into the root of my cultural struggles whilst growing up. A must read for anyone working with or raising British Nigerian children.
