"This is the first book in our field that addresses specifically the topic of adult motivation for learning . . . . so clearly written, so comprehensive, and so thoroughly based on scholarship that it will become a classic in the literature of our field." —Malcolm S. Knowles
"A straightforward, practical approach to adult motivation for learning . . . an excellent reference guide for instructors, teachers, and trainers." —Training News
"Well planned, easy to read, and rich in insight. The author delivers what he promises, avoids jargon and psychobabble, is not afraid of using humor, and provides abundant examples." —Training and Development Journal
"A major step toward a vastly improved and more holistic frame of reference that will truly help to enhance the quality of adult life." —Journal of Higher Education
A resource for teachers, trainers, and others who want to be a motivating influence on adults as learners. Wlodkowski (Regis U., Denver) points out that all motivation must come from within learners but explores factors that trigger it and ways teachers can stimulate and nourish it. The second edition is revised from the first, published over a decade since, with a motivational framework more responsive to the influence of race, ethnicity, gender, and class on adult learning.

This book was a required textbook for my Master's level class in Adult Education. As an educator at an adult basic education program, it is truly a find. It offers great direction and over 55 strategies for teachers of any level of adult education for motivating your students and/or competing with all the issues of life that a non-traditional aged student (from 24-70+) brings to the learning environment in order to keep them engaged and coming back.
