'Early in the text, the author states the aim of this book to
be, ''to provide a relatively easily digestible overview of
learning theory, and the references and further reading at the end
of each chapter will allow you to engage in more in-depth study of
areas that are of particular interest'' (p. 6). This, and
considerably more, has been achieved in a well-crafted resource for
both teachers and students in the lifelong learning sector (and
beyond), one they will find informative and engaging in terms of
truly understanding how effective teaching practices are
informed and enhanced by learning theories.'
