I read this for an Adult Learning class in graduate school. This book would have been good for teachers, but as an administrator, I found it to be a little too much information. There are lots of great teaching strategies in the later part of the book. The beginning of the book was more relevant to my interests, as it talked more about why adults will take classes, motivations, theory, etc.

Excellent summary of the research and thought relevant to motivating adult learners. Much quicker read than I anticipated.
