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 The stats may be outdated but the theories are up to date and quite usable.

Each adventure with Spalding is a little different. But the issues always remain the same, Spalding is an intensely neurotic individual with an over developed fear of death. But that is why we love him. It is not always what he says, but more how he says it. After seeing Spalding perform his monologue live I have four things to do; make a mental note to see him perform at any chance, rewatch his videos, read some of his books, and start keeping a journal.

Format: Paperback
Save no ones sanity, master monologist Spalding Gray is at it again. This time delivering the most neurotic and insightful commentary on the subject of the mid-life crisis. Finding the perfect balance between career and personal life is metaphoricly shown to us through the eyes of a man learning to ski for the first time. Gray is a maestro of the "first person" leading the reader up and down the rocky sloaps of the novel. At the end of the perfect run, Gray only slips in his sementality. Finding the perfect balance has only made his bitting humor about the subject a bit soggy.

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.

I haven't read the book version of Spalding Grey's latest monologue, however, I did have the wonderful opportunity to see him perform it live. I was, naturally, overwhelmed. Mr. Gray takes the audience on a journey from the mountains of Colorado to the innermost reaches of his soul. Certainly his most personal monologue yet (beat that), "It's a Slippery Slope" explores facets of Spalding Gray's personality never before reached. A definite winner!
