Published in 1996 (and probably in the works for several years before that), the book is overly academic, with heavy emphasis on the theories and therapeutic conventions behind TA. The "diagrams" are unfortunate ham-fisted attempts to graphically depict interrelationships, but are so poorly executed as to be largely unusable. I really didn't hold out much hope for the book, but, since it's now out of print and I bought it used on the cheap, I figured I'd take a chance. There are far more enlightening, readable, and usable books available these days for those who are interested in the psychodynamics of facilitating in-person learning and development events.
In fairness, the author does inject "exercises" for the facilitator to try with groups at the end of each chapter, but they're, again, simplistic and elementary.
Lastly, the book has a very stilted, stiff British writing style that's tough on an American corporate audience that is used to a much more conversational writing style . The book could also have done with a good copy editor because there are numerous punctuation errors that often made me stop and have to reread a passage to figure out what the author was trying to say. I lived and worked in the U.K. for a time in the 80s, so I'm no stranger to this style, but it's difficult to deal with an academic style when the audience is anything but academic.
It's no surprise why this book is no longer in print. If you're looking for some history and different takes on how to facilitate face-to-face learning, then this book may have some value--as it did for me. If you're looking for solid techniques I'd recommend you look elsewhere.
Useful for trainers, coaches & anyone involved in learning & development.
