Steven Hawkins' book provides a highly practical guide to implementing his very powerful facilitation techniques. In this fast-paced 21st century, his writing is to the point, providing just enough theoretical background but emphasizing the 'how to' - I personally have found it to be a valuable manual. -- Mohit Mukherjee, Director, UPEACE Centre for Executive Education, United Nations mandated University for Peace (UPEACE)
