MEDIA REVIEWS
"A wonderful contribution to adult education literature that brings together the many approaches to program planning in a single, highly usable volume. Whether you're designing an educational program that is built around directive, collaborative or non-directive principles, this book is certain to provide new insights and ideas on all aspects of the program planning process. It is a well organized, clearly presented and comprehensive handbook that will have tremAndous value for both the practicing professional and the student." --S. Joseph Levine, professor, Department of Agricultural and Extension Education, Michigan State University

"A distinctive contribution of Rothwell and Cookson's contingency approach to program planning is their detailed attention to contextual analysis. In doing so, they have drawn broadly from examples, models, and preferences from the literature and from several of their surveys on needs assessment and evaluation practices and view points. The result is a book that explains the 'why' of practical guidelines based on a sound rationale." --Alan B. Knox, professor, Department of Continuing and Vocational Education, University of Wisconsin, Madison

"This is no ordinary book on planning. In fact, it is quite extraordinary in both the breadth and depth of its treatment. Rothwell and Cookson have effected that rare combination of speaking with clarity and lucidness to even the neophyte planner, while at the same time offering a comprehensive and well-researched document to even the most seasoned practitioner and scholar." --Marcie Boucouvalas, professor, Adult Education, Virginia Tech Graduate Center

"The two foundational models presented in this book represent a unique contribution to program planning. An understanding of the Lifelong Education Program Planning Model and its incorporation into educational and business settings will greatly facilitate planning as a strategic process. Its use along with the Contingency Based Program Planning Model offers versatility to planners in coping with ever-changing conditions." --John A. Niemi, Distinguished Teaching Professor, Adult Continuing Education, Department of Leadership and Educational Policy Studies, Northern Illinois University
