    I liked the overview, especially the section on far-reach or principle-based learning, which occurs as dynamic and changing, or dependent on situation, context, etc. I find this learning essential for leadership fields. The mind makes correlates and connections, but is not a void or container meant to fill with facts that can be repeated and tested systematically. Our social life needs more principle-based emphasis in the sciences.

Our social life needs more principle-based emphasis in the sciences. I wanted to see more clear flow in paragraphs: introduce a concept, define it, explain it, *then* give an example and show an illustration. Too often the author failed to follow her own advice by including complex diagrams with little lead in with her textual content. Perhaps a rewrite will help the next edition.

    This would be a good one to share with SMEs to communicate the idea that there are different ways to create training programs depending on the content that you're teaching. If you're an instructional designer finding it difficult to break out of the "click and read" format, especially when that is all the content SMEs will deliver to you, this might be the book for you. The elearning sections are a little out-dated in terms of tools used and look and feel, but the examples themselves are still r This would be a good one to share with SMEs to communicate the idea that there are different ways to create training programs depending on the content that you're teaching.

    Gives you a framework for describing new information, most specifically for computer-based training. If you have never taken a college-level education class (I haven't), I think this is a great start.
