From the Back Cover:

"An important contribution to the field of adult education. Brookfield says what many have felt but been reluctant to voice and he does it with eloquence and grace."

--Lifelong Learning

"For practitioners, this is a useful guide to both facilitating adult learning and for developing a philosophy of practice that will help to develop solid theories-in-use. It is also absolutely essential for students of adult education."

--The Journal of Academic Librarianship

"This book is suitable and highly recommended for a wide range of audiences and will be of value to all who would seek to become facilitators; who strive to make the learners with whom they work more aware of their own potential for self-development."

--CLENEXCHANGE, newsletter of the Continuing Library Education Network and Exchange Round Table, American Library Association

"Brookfield has made a major contribution in the critical evaluation of past research and practice and in defining . . . effective adult learning."

--Teachers College Record

"The virtues of this book are many; it displays a comprehensive and appropriately critical acquaintance with the present state of adult education, both theoretical and practical, the case studies and program examples drawn from settings in Canada, the United states. Great Britain, and Europe reflect a welcome international outlook, and the bibliography of 690 titles provides a wealth of research material."

--Convergence
