Reviews

"... timeliness, breadth and clarity are its essential strengths". LSE Review of Books
"This optimistic yet deeply practical book shares many insights on how evidence can be used to promote better policy and better public services. The authors rightly reaffirm the importance of evidence but don't shy away from the practical difficulties in the way of using it. An indispensable resource." Geoff Mulgan, Nesta
"An important and authoritative analysis of the state of evidence-informed policy and practice, across key domains and countries, by an impressive line-up of leading scholars in the field." Steve Martin, Cardiff University
"From stakeholder engagement to impact assessment, 'What Works Now?' is the new seminal review of the state of the art (and science) of evidence use." David Phipps, York University
"A long anticipated follow-up on What works? and an authoritative text on evidence-informed policy-making." Enrico Reuter, University of York
"Excellent as an introduction to evidence-based policy and practice and its evolution across sectors and countries. This is a fascinating and novel set of scholarly and practical reflections on infrastructure, debates and solutions." Kathryn Oliver, London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine
