"The Taxonomy of Metacognition is almost encyclopedic in its treatment of metacognition. ... The book will be a comprehensive reference guide for those who are interested in metacognition and want a source that characterizes the now-sprawling domain of metacognition." - Bridgid Finn, Washington University, St. Louis, USA, in PsycCRITIQUES

"This is a high-level and comprehensive study of the conceptual framework and taxonomy of metacognition. It offers a deep and thoughtful analysis of the extensive literature (including philosophical and historical perspectives), draws on a wide-range of disciplines and clarifies some of the terminological and conceptual confusion in an engaging and logical manner". Alison Garton, Adjunct Professor of Psychology, Edith Cowan University, Australia

"Metacognition means different things to different people. However, there has previously been little overlap between cognitive and Educational psychology. This book does an excellent job bridging that gap". Bennett L. Schwartz, Professor of Psychology, Florida International University, USA

"This is the most comprehensive and systematic overview of the literature on metacognition and related concepts that I have ever seen. The coverage is simply awesome. I can't think of any major theorist or topic that has been overlooked. The treatment of diverse topics and theorists, moreover, is consistently fair and accurate, and often insightful... It will stand for years, I expect, as an unrivaled overview of the concept of metacognition, and will remain thereafter the definitive record of how psychologists thought about metacognition in the opening decade of the 21st century". Professor David Moshman, from the Foreword
