Editorial Reviews


"The Discussion Book" offers new ways to engage people and energize groups; will get employees, students, colleagues, constituents, and community members to participate more fully in deliberative decision-making; encourage creativity and openness to new perspectives; increase collaboration and build cohesive teams; and keep groups focused on important topics and hard-to-address issues." (Reviewer's Bookwatch, May 2016)

From the Back Cover


"Brookfield and Preskill's discussion techniques eliminate classroom power dynamics and provide equal opportunity for both introverts and extroverts to fully engage in the learning. These techniques will transform how you lead, manage, teach, and facilitate."
—Ruth Gotian, Tri-Institutional MD-PhD Program, Weill Cornell/Rockefeller/Sloan-Kettering Hospital

"The authors have created a powerful compendium of discussion-based activities that can be used in classrooms at all levels. This book has not only become a staple in my teaching process, but just as importantly in my personal life. The Discussion Book is an important read for educators, students, and groups looking to engage in democratic action in all facets of life."
—Jarritt Sheel, adjunct professor of liberal arts and sciences, Guttman Community College – CUNY

"The Discussion Book is an ideal text for the work in transformative learning used in the leadership seminars of United Methodist Women. With this book, adult leaders and learners are provided 'access' to the teaching skills of Brookfield and Preskill. What a gift!"
—Faye Wilson, director, GeeFaye Associates, and transformative learning trainer with United Methodist Women

"This book launches my practice into a world of possibilities. The candidness of the format and the detailing of how, why, and where each technique will work (or not work) gives me a brilliantly clear sense of each technique's potential to create effective, empowering learning experiences."
—Bobbi Smith, anti-racism consultant and educator, British Columbia

"Brookfield and Preskill's work inspired a Marine Corps-wide movement for more inclusive and participatory training and education. The tools, techniques, and procedures found in this text reach audiences well beyond the typical classroom."
—Captain Shawn McCann, US Marine Corps, Train the Trainer School
