HASH(0x95c2aef4) out of 5 stars Distinguishing Facilitation Powerfully and Simply 31 Mar. 2000
By Hamish Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Art of Facilitation is written in simple language. It cuts through the academic tendency to complicate this domain, and in doing so displays the authors mastery of it.
The Art of Facilitation elucidates what it takes to facilitate groups powerfully and provides pathways, tools and processes for this.
This book will provide people new to facilitation with an intellectual analysis of it and old hands clear pathways to doing complex things simply. I use it all the time as a resource in my pratice as a professional facilitator and it is the required text in facilitator training courses which I lead for Zenergy.
I would also recommend Hunter et al's other books: Co-operacy, The Zen of Groups, The Essence of Facilitation.

HASH(0x9628dd8c) out of 5 stars New Facilitators must read! 28 Mar. 2000
By Lynn Voss or Elizabeth Voss - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Art of Facilitation is a must read for new facilitators or trainers. It is easy to read and offers practical advice and activities for newcomers to the field of facilitation. This is one of the few facilitation books to offer a chapter on facilitating yourself. Not as advanced as other facilitation books (Masterful Facilitation or Facilitator's Guide to Particiapatory Decision Making) but recommend this as part of any facilitator's library of resources.

HASH(0x95444414) out of 5 stars Clear, engaging, informative... dust free 20 Jan. 2011
By Daniel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
A way of testing the quality of a book is to monitor the amount of dust it collects. Many books are read once, thought about briefly, and then cursed to spend a lonely existence gathering dust on the bottom of a bookshelf.

This book resides happily on my bookshelf, dust free.

There are two primary reasons I find myself continually drawn back to reading the Art of Facilitation. The first is its breadth - it contains a general theoretical overview of facilitation as well as useful practical guidance which is helpful to refer back to. The second reason relates to the gems that it contains. The book is packed full of useful little snippets including processes, intervention strategies, methods for shifting levels in a group as well as questions to reflect on to become a more grounded person/facilitator.

This book is not a fancy, fashionable new approach to facilitation. Neither is it a dense overview of every approach to facilitation possible. It is an informative, very readable, clearly written, highly entertaining book which I would wholeheartedly recommend to novice facilitators as well as those more experienced in the 'Art' of Facilitation.

HASH(0x95444f60) out of 5 stars Great resource for enhancing facilitation! 16 April 2004
By Shannon E. Erdie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I found The Art of Facilitation to be an easy-to-read, complete guide in helping to better understand facilitation. I suggest that every beginner facilitator should read this. The authors wrote it specifically outlined and detailed, yet not too complicated. It is a good book to keep close by as a quick reference source. The breakdown of the book allows it to be a wonderful training guide complete with a toolkit to assist your every need of facilitation.
