“Russ-Eft and Preskill set out on an ambitious journey to provide a systematic and comprehensive approach to the theory and practice of evaluation—and they deliver!”
Mark Easterby-Smith, Professor of Management Learning, Lancaster University
“Russ-Eft and Preskill have written a valuable book that applies a collaborative approach to evaluation. Not only do they provide a comprehensive and accessible overview of the evaluation theory, but also offer a rigorous review and critique of its methods and techniques. This is not just another evaluation cook-book, but a resource for the thinking evaluator.”
