`Owen and Rogers provide an exquisite portrait of the evaluation landscape from

the logic of evaluation to process use. They bring evaluation down-to-earth,

providing many of their own illustrative examples to ground their discussion

about evaluative enquiry. Their understanding of the various forms of

evaluation is as insightful as it is useful. Program Evaluation is an engaging

read; an evaluator's delight. I couldn't it put it down once I picked it up.

Owen and Roger's conception of evaluation enquiry broadens our understanding

of evaluation. Their work is responsive to the needs of evaluators in real-world

settings. Program Evaluation helps us all keep pace with evaluation needs within modern organization and agencies' - David M Fetterman, Stanford University

`Provides a good overview of evaluation both for managers and for students envisaging involvement in evaluation. It is a readable and practical book and I would recommend it for social workers wishing to know more about the different forms and functions of evaluation, and the considerations that have to be addressed in carrying out useful evaluations' - British Journal of Social Work
