4Great for any Organizational leader!
By A Customer
I used a bunch of ideas from this book for my position in a student organization. A definite must for programs on dry material. It never hurts to have an ace up your sleeve, and this book is it!

2Even company money could be spent more effectively
By Michael Harlen
For any medium to advanced trainer, group leader, or presenter, this book does not raise any new methods of improving audience participation. In fact, the "cheese" factor is enough to choke even the most discriminating mouse.

Having said that, if you're a beginner with little to no background in or exposure to group training, then this book may help give you a little head start to realize how to engage an audience through active participation.

It's only because of the potential to aide a beginner that I rated this a 2. Otherwise, it's sitting with a lone star.

2It's not that great.
By Scott W. Carrigan
This book wasn't that great. There were VERY few ideas that I would use. I wouldn't recommend buying this book.
