Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a Facilitator/Trainer (and contributor to this book), I am always on the lookout for new activities, methodologies and ideas for making my sessions more interactive.
I've got a large collection of training activity books, and have found that very few of them make it to my "MVR" (Most Valuable Reference) collection. This one has. It is well organized, thorough and contains a large number of "usable" activities. If you are looking for an activity reference that you will use frequently - this is it!
