In this second edition of the book that has become a classic in the field, award–winning author Stephen D. Brookfield offers inspiration and down–to–earth advice to new and seasoned teachers. The Skillful Teacher is a comprehensive guide that shows how to thrive on the unpredictability and diversity of classroom life and includes insights developed from the hundreds of workshops conducted by the author.

Review:
Praise for the First Edition of The Skillful Teacher

"Insights and practical suggestions to college educators for whom teaching students is a major part of their professional responsibility. . . . [Brookfield] will become to the field of education what Peter Drucker has become to management: a scholar who educates and influences practitioners in the field through incisive and challenging writing."
Canadian Journal of University Continuing Education

"Readable, innovative, and perceptive. . . . The final chapters on the political realities and phenomenological truths of college teaching alone are worth the price of the book, especially for prospective, new, or veteran college, adult, or continuing education teachers."
Choice

"In an educational world that seems to be dominated by prescriptive exhortations. . .this book provides a refreshing step back from those preoccupations to look at the human relations that always are at play between teacher and student and between student and student."
TESL Canada Journal
