If you are just getting into reading adult education literature, Stephen Brookfield is a great introduction. I find many authors use language that is very difficult to translate for a new student of the field. Brookfield is very conscious of this challenge and writes in a manner that anyone with a university education can understand. Thank you, Stephen Brookfield. You helped me to learn to enjoy reading adult education literature.

Brookfield makes clear how critical thinking is a necessary part of adult education. It is necessary for the adult educator to develop the skills necessary to be cognizant of the critical thinking process, through practice and developing the ability to articulate the concept and process to students while assisting them into putting the critical thinking process into practice.
Brookfield outlines in this book how critical thinking is necessary in decipering media coverage, developing political positions, negotiating family vacations, and even in building and maintaining intimate relationships. Further, Brookfield advises that the critical thinking process affords students the ability to recognize perspectives other than their own held beliefs. Finally, through the epilogue, the educator is given some clear direction in implemeting and incorporating critical thinking dialouge and questioning in the classroom.
Excellent supplement to any andragogy focused course or to improve the quality and efficacy of adult education.

Format: Paperback
Stephen Brookfield writes 254 pages on one of the most important topic in our world and basically says nothing useful. His style is very "touchy / feely, and he writes very superfluous statements that provide little, if any enlightenment to the reader. On his primary topic on how to teach critical thinking I found no practical application. This book reminds me of a college student's attempt to write intelligently on an important topic, but it was way over his head.
