Although I was skeptical about this title, I decided to go ahead and buy it. Well, I was not diappointed! I found that the amount of information provided was beyond my wildest dreams. You DO have to do some digging within the book, but I have used SEVERAL of the ideas and feel that my meetingas are more focused and on track than ever. Especially when it comes to technical trainings (which I do!), the book gives a grat deal of info regarding training issues and how to keep people interested!

Fun, Fun, Fun Sept. 24 2008

Since I work with a wide variety of ages, upper elementary through adult, I found this book to be a valuable resource. A lot of the activities are geared more toward the adult side, but I have very successfully adapted several of the activities to the younger aduience. The section at the beginning of the book with the How-To's for facilitators presents some excellent advice. The activities are categorized very nicely, and the lay-out of the activities themselves is very similar to an educator's lesson plan, which I also think is a big plus.
