The author provides a great service to continuing educators by building a bridge between the often theoretical world of evaluating and its many models, and the very practical world of continuing education. As the bridge is built, attention is given to values, problems, and leadership. Too often
evaluating is treated as a scientific endeavor and little of the art of evaluating is examined. Grounded in the everyday practice of continuing education and evaluating, many of the points made and the examples provided here will be familiar to adult educators within university settings. The book moves to the heart of issues related to evaluating in an expeditious manner. Not only does the author provide the readers with his views, but he generously illustrates why he holds the views with
examples from his experience with continuing education and human resource development. A needed bridge between the two fields, this book was written by an evaluating professional and continuing educator who understands both fields. Managers, administrators, and human resource practitioners will benefit from this book.
