Reviews & Statements

The objective of this book is to reveal to our readers new concepts/surprising research results that will help those reentering the world of work by applying these new concepts. [...] As the backbone of any economy, adult learners keep generating new knowledge/new concepts/new technologies to help themselves walk out of these economic recessions. People in this very field of vocational and adult education dream big and they are not empty dreamers. They are creative and practical doers.
