Spalding has done the hard work of distilling the literature and most importantly harvesting the pearls of wisdom from his own extensive teaching experiences to make a one-of-kind resource. Whether you teach in the classroom, facilitate workshops, or are just trying to get in touch with your own inner educator this gem of a book has something for you. A must-read for everyone who cares about learning, change and their fellow human beings.”
