If it’s possible to be in love with a book, then I am in love with this one. Julie Dirksen has written a most excellent book for the beginning practitioner as well as the seasoned veteran of instructional design.
--Cammy Bean, Vice President of Learning Design, Kineo This book is probably the single best book for the person who’s just getting started and wants to know more about instructional design and how people learn.
--Tom Kuhlmann, Author of the Rapid E-Learning Blog I’m delighted to have this witty, insightful, cleverly illustrated guide.
--Michael W. Allen, Ph.D., Author of Michael Allen's Guide to E-Learning
