«‘Learning in Places: The Informal Education Reader’ may sound at first a bit ambitious. In fact, not only is there nothing else like it in ‘the field,’ but it is indeed canonical – in its quality, in its range of interests, and, appropriately, in its description and analysis of the variegated nature of the settings or ‘places’ in which learning occurs.» (Philip Wexler, Professor of Sociology of Education, School of Education, Hebrew University, Jerusalem)
