Industry Reviews

"Jane Vella extAnds her previous work to bring us the sounds, smells, laughter, and images of 'train-the-trainer' workshops in popular education. Through living examples of workshops on health, literacy, and exconomic development in Chile, Haiti, Arkansas, and New England, we see how theory is translated into practice. Kudos for this hands-on application of popular education." (Nina B. Wallerstein, associate professor, Department of Family Community Medicine, University of New Mexico)

"Read this book if yu are serious about making a difference...a difference in the way you train trainers, facilitate training, and affect the lives of your participants." (Paula K. Berardinelli, president, Center for Organizational Research and Education, Inc.)

"A marvelous guide for all of us struggling to understand how adults learn, how we can teach in ways that respect and build on the needs and experiences of adults, and how we can help others learn the principles of popular education."
