As I implement stuff from this book I know I will upgrade the rating to 5 as I can now see how implementing simple concepts can make the learning process so much more fun and "stickable"! The writing in the book is simple and has minimal jargon to help readers who are new to Instruction Design (as myself). I went through the whole book quickly to see the coverage and take down notes, and will start re-reading as I implement my own learning project. Simple illustrations along the way help in making the subject-matter light and breezy, instead of feeling like a heavily loaded textbook. I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to learn or revise the basic building blocks of instruction design.
