Editorial Reviews

Review

"The aim of this book is to provide an accessible, comprehensive, and clear guide to impact evaluation. The material, ranging from motivating impact evaluation, to the advantages of different methodologies, to power calculations and costs, is explained very clearly and the coverage is impressive. This book will become a much consulted and used guide and will affect policy making for years to come." --Orazio Attanasio , Professor of Economics, University College London; Director, Centre for the Evaluation of Development Policies, Institute for Fiscal Studies, United Kingdom

"This is a valuable resource for those seeking to conduct impact evaluations in the developing world, covering both the conceptual and practical issues involved, and illustrated with examples from recent practice." --Michael Kremer , Gates Professor of Developing Societies, Department of Economics, Harvard University, United States

"The main ingredients for good public evaluations are (a) appropriate methodologies; (b) the ability to solve practical problems such as collecting data, working within low budgets, and writing the final report; and (c) accountable governments. This book not only describes solid technical methodologies for measuring the impact of public programs, but also provides several examples and takes us into the real world of implementing evaluations, from convincing policy makers to disseminating results. If more practitioners and policy makers read this handbook, we will have better policies and results in many countries. If governments improve accountability, the impact of this handbook would be even larger. --Gonzalo Hernández Licona, Executive Secretary, National Council for the Evaluation of Social Development Policy (CONEVAL), Mexico

This is a deadly boring book to get through. The author's writing style really made it difficult. There are some important concepts and ideas buried under all that bad writing. For what it's worth, I would not recommend this book to a friend. I regret buying it.

This is a very good guide for impact evaluations. At Abt Associates, we have used this book for several trainings for monitoring and evaluation staff and it has really been appreciated due to its straightforward discussion of rigorous evaluation techniques. It is a good reference for both domestic and international practitioners.

I highly recommend this book for everybody wanting to know more about impact evaluation, but above all to all these people in development agencies, ministries or executing units who have to design and execute projects/programs. They could do much good by prospectively creating design conditions that may facilitate easier generalization of project benefits or executing project with a wider view in mind.

Without going into too much detail and theoretical justification, this book presents in a very concise and understandible form the techniques that can help evaluators/designers of projects to draw/prepare the RIGHT conclusions out of observation, measurement and comparison.

This book is an easy read, when interested in this subjet.
