    Put it on your shelf!

    Bob Lucas is a forward thinking, brain-based learning practitioner who's prolific writings (having written or contributed to 29+ books) have enriched the training literature for years. I wrote the forward for this book because of my enthusiasm for the techniques Bob advocates. A generous smorgasbord of those techniques are showcased in Creative Learning. This work is a ready source of training activities, techniques, tools, and tips for virtually any training situation. It deserves a place on every trainer's shelf. It's on mine.
