Nice general review of all facets of CTE. If you are interested in Adult education or considering a new career this is a nice introduction. I have an interest in developing training programs for my business, which include performance based training methodologies such as HPT. Adult learning theory is a good foundation to build on if you plan to teach or develop training. This book will give you that even if you buy an old edition for $3.00. The stats may be outdated but the theories are up to date and quite usable.

Perhaps the author should write a revision for this book. Although it has great ideas, the dated statistics and conclusions make this book less useable in the study of workforce education in the 21t century.
