'The three authors have modelled the processes and the conclusions of their book by bringing experiences and theories together, synthesising and transforming them. They provide solid, well-referenced details for educators and researchers to reflect and build on. ' Dr Alan Barker, Education Consultant 'I find that I have been drawn into all aspects of the book - the theoretical developments, the case studies and the analysis and interpretation and have read right through. Talk about transfer of learning - as I read I kept saying to myself "Oh yes, I recognize that" or "Oh now I understand why...". The whole text is a wonderful exposition of the ideas and leaves the reader with an enthusiasm for exploring many of the numerous references provided. The authors suggest it is a "dip into" book and I agree and is therefore really useful for practitioners, but it also provides a coherent introduction to the ideas of "transfer of learning" and it has a strength in the analysis of the theories, real examples of exploration of the theories through the case studies and their subsequent analysis which would allow a practitioner/trainer to review his or her training activities in a comprehensive way.' Alison Holmes, Director, University Centre for Teaching and Learning, University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand
