John Patrick provides a comprehensive guide to the current state of knowledge on the principles and practice of training, which is relevant to all contexts of the subject.
Both the theoretical and practical issues in task/skill analysis, training design and evaluation are covered.
Aspects of industrial/occupational psychology, human factors and cognitive psychology are integrated. The reader will find traditional and recent concepts, spanning diverse areas in instruction, education and training, uniquely discussed in one book.
"The comprehensiveness of this book is especially impressive because it is the work of a single author...The book informs and challenges one in so many areas... A book of 561 pages and maybe 2000 references, giving an authoritative account of a major field of activity for occupational psychologists must be an important resource. It will help any reader clarify his or her understanding of half-grasped principles, introduce new areas and suggest new lines for future research."
--THE OCCUPATIONAL PSYCHOLOGIST
"The 500+ pages of the book comprehensively cover the major areas dealing with the training function...The book provides the thoughtful reader with a level and breadth of information that enables wise decision making. In fact, the book represents an excellent text to be used in advanced graduate courses in an industrial/organizational psychology program... The reader of Training will finish the book with a great deal of information about the training function... The readers who invest the time needed to come to grips with this book will find that they earn a good return on their investment."
