This book includes many new, enhanced features and content. Overall, the text integrates two success stories of practicing instructional designers with a focus on the process of instructional design. The text includes stories of a relatively new designer and another with eight to ten years of experience, weaving their scenarios into the chapter narrative. Throughout the book, there are updated citations, content, and information, as well as more discussions on learning styles, examples of cognitive procedure, and explanations on sequencing from cognitive load theory.

This book is an excellent resource for instructors, training developers, and instructional designers. The format is simplistic but extremely thorough. The best part is that the framework consists of a number of different theoretical approaches. For this reason it allows the reader to adapt portions that apply to his or her particular style of development. Please check your publication date. I believe that it was published in 2004. Thanks!!!
