... if you're a bit of a 'thesp' at heart and thrive on role plays and throwing yourself about in the course of a training exercise, then lay on Macduff . This is your kind of thing... an easy to read, step by step guide.

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.
