    Full disclosure: I read this book for an Adult Learning class as part of my Master's program in Organization Development (i.e., had no choice in the matter). For those interested in the historical and philosophical underpinnings of adult education, this would likely be a great book. I found it to be as dry as toast. Though, I suppose in the future if I ever have a reason to need to know something about adult education philosophy, I would use it as a reference.

    This text is very interesting and informative to those who work with adults in an educational capacity or for those who want to learn more about their own learning and teaching styles or to anyone who wants to hone/develop their own philosophy on education.
