Good overview for novice trainers
The author covers a thorough range of topics relevant to anyone who somehow finds themselves responsible for training. I was surprised by how many things she thought to include. She also did a nice job of including references to check for more information - e.g., web sites, societies, etc. (I intend to look into several of these.)Was this review helpful?

While the *breadth* of topics was better than I expected, the *depth* of coverage was often a bit disappointing. I may not have ever even considered (or encountered) some of her topics. But it struck me that her recommendations were fairly self-evident.
I was particularly disappointed by the book's lack of attention to the development of training material. Other readers might have the same perspective as the author (i.e., they rely on others for the material). For these people, the book's an overall good read.
But in my role, developing the training's content is my primary objective. She left this section to the very end, making it seem almost like an afterthought. (Hence, my disappointment.)
