I read the first edition of this book until my copy fell apart. I was delighted to see that Judge Goodman has written a revised second edition of Basic Skills for the New Mediator. It is clearly written by a mediator who knows what he is talking about. The detailed table of contents and the new index in the back of the book allow me to quickly locate and read a discussion of any topic. The author also invites his readers to ask him questions about mediation by email. Even though I am an experienced mediator, this book is valuable to me. If you want to learn how to mediate, or how to become a better mediator - buy this book!
I found Basic Skills For The New Mediator to be an excellent guidebook for all mediators, new and seasoned. As a mediator and trainer myself, I found topics that I had overlooked to include in my material. Allan Goodman writes with a style that encompasses readers of all levels, regardless of background or expertise. As the title suggests 'basic', without the unnecessary fluff that so many books on the subject contain. I am looking forward to reading Basic Skills For The New Arbitrator.
