Packed with essential and proven insights and advice from a master teacher, this handbook enables instructors at all levels to successfully teach any subject to adults.

In this new edition an overview of presentation skills for business, education, professional, and informal settings contribute to the handbook's effective use in the classroom and workplace.

We have spent thousands of dollars in instructor education over the last several years, but the best money we have ever spent was purchasing the Teach! book by Leo Meyer.

I found this a good book especially for reference. The many different topics of teaching that are included in the book make it easy to go to a particular subject such as, for example, getting a guest speaker. It has a short page of general info on that part of a classroom activity. Or organizing lesson plans and papers, planning presentations and testing procedures are well described. Another part was the section about lesson plans. There is a simple example on the page and a good description of why, when, and how.

It is a good size book, not too big, not too small, easy to have available on the desk. I am not one to sit down and read a whole book through but like to have information as needed, available and easy to get to. I think that this book does do the job!

Thanks for the opportunity to look it over.

I have found it helpful both in its author’s real world experience and as a way to organize my lesson presentation. I use the lesson plan form to map out my lecture, lab and interactive activities. The book was also shared with a friend of mine who teaches auto mechanics. He was skeptical when the book was given, but commended the author’s practical and well rounded approach.

Thank you for publishing this book.

Your book Teach! The Art of Teaching Adults is just what all of our instructors and apprenticeship coordinators have been looking for over the years to help them in their apprenticeship training classes. It lays out, in an easy-to-understand format, suggestions on how instructors can help make their classes more interesting, boost attentiveness in class, and in general help their apprentices to better learn what’s being presented in lesson plans.

There is no doubt that Leo Meyer’s experiences as an instructor are the contributing factors as to why this is such a valuable teaching tool, and why it is easy to understand.

You have created something here which needs to be read by anyone in a teaching/classroom setting. You have made the jobs of our instructors and coordinators a lot easier with this book. They all loved it.

I’ve been teaching since 1980 and have not seen a book like this. It is well-written and most helpful.
