Editorial Reviews

Review

Serving as a useful overview of the field’s landscape at a given point in time and place, the Handbook enjoys a unique status as the point of first reference when exploring the disparate theory and practice of adult and continuing education. The 2010 Handbook under the skilled editorial guidance of Carol E. Kasworm, Amy D. Rose, and Jovita M. Ross-Gordon continues the informed legacy of the preceding volumes. At the same time, it advances the academic and professional substance of the field with attention to its symbiotic nature and impact on the broader society.

Published by the American Association for Adult and Continuing Education (AAACE) with SAGE Publications, the Handbook is a needed addition to the adult educator’s professional collection. In one readable compendium it provides a baseline status report of where the field is today, its intellectual and institutional antecedents, and future directions. Practitioners and scholars in the field will find conceptual and applied material synthesized in a lucid fashion. The bibliographic citations provide a map to research and standards of practice over the past several decades.

(James K. Broomall, Assistant Provost The Journal of Continuing Higher Education 2011-04-28)

Like a previous reviewer, I find this textbook hard to read and understand. There's no fluidity in the text---just a compilation of theories that are not expanded upon fully. I.certainly hope the next edition is better than this one.

I use this book on occasion. It is not my "go to" text for citing adult education. There are some areas where I think it could use some more detailed explanation to trends and styles, but it does provide the names of of some of the proponents. It could have provided more.

I was thinking about a 3 star rating, however the subjects covered concerning continuing education are better than "ok"

As a result this is a tepid four star rating.

This book is worse than aweful. I thought it was just me, but EVERYONE in my Masters program is complaining about this book. Diffulcult to read and understand. Now, I know why people who do research don't teach. Need to fall asleep? This book is better than any sleeping pill and quick.

Amazon.com is the best place I have found to purchase textbooks. I know some of my students go online to check out textbooks that I require for the college courses I teach.
