As a primer on ISD, this is the best book you're ever likely to come across. Written in a clear manner with tons of useful and practical ideas and guidelines, it is essential reading for both the novice and experiences trainer. As the other reviewers have said, if this is not on every trainer's desk in your organization, then it should be.
The book is Divided to Four Sections:
1: The Basics of ISD - a short introduction to the model and the concepts of ISD.
2: Working through the ADDIE Model - Takes through the steps of the ISD process in more detail and with lots of exercises.
3: The Basics of Design and Lesson Plans
4: Tips for Success - This is probably the most useful part of the book with numerous ideas and suggestions to avoid common pitfalls and to enhance the process. It also has a special section on e-learning that I found quite useful as an introduction to the topic.
Overall, this is an excellent book and highly recommended along with Lou Russel's "Project Management for Trainers" which complements this book but focuses on the operational aspects of managing and implementing the Training project.
