I bought "Training and Development" because it was one of the 20 top training books written, and I'm very happy I bought it. The book was extremely well written and had in it many helpful do's and don'ts, outlines of how to present programs and very interesting material. I read it like a novel and know I shall refer to it many times in the coming months and years.

This book is an excellent resource for the instructional design process. It provides clear, concise explanations of the theory and practices needed to develop, deliver, and evaluate solid, effective training programs. While the book's focus is on communication an leadership skills, the practices are equally applicable to "hard skills" or technical training. Beebe, Mottet, and Roach explain the material in a manner that is easy to read and understand, so this book works as well for people who have no experience with training as it does for seasoned professionals. I have managed corporate learning and development for a number of years, and this is the central reference I use with my development teams.

Be warned, that the authors come from an instructional communication background and, therefore, do not appear to be slaves to the ADDIE framework like other authors. Everything you find in ADDIE is there, and more, but if you're looking for another book to rehash and regurgitate that stuff, this is not it. While it's not as catchy as ADDIE, their process is much clearer.

If you're teaching or learning to do training, this is an excellent text.
If you're a trainer, instructional designer, learning manager, organizational development or human resources manager, this book belongs on your shelf.

Used this book for a college class. I really enjoyed reading this book because it doesn't read like a typical textbook. I found the information in this book to be practical and easily implemented.

Got a great deal compared with college bookstore through Amazon Marketplace... looks like a dull book with a lot of information I will not use since it is a older edition. Overall I am satisfied because I saved a lot of money over my school's store and got the item very quickly.

Great book. Was in such good shape. I like how it was sold so cheap. I actually had to drop the class so I had to sell it to someone else. I sold it for the same price I bought it for so I was very happy about that!
