Read this for my doctoral program. This sure covered the bases and was less of a yawn than some other books I read. However, it really grills my cheese when authors cite their own writing numerous times throughout the work. To me it says "hey, I didn't want to do a lot of research for this particular book." If I wanted to read all the stuff from your other periodicals and books, I would be reading those.
As far as text books go, this one is good. It provides a Summary and Key Concepts at the end of every chapter which is perfect for us non-traditional students who are employed and have families.

THIS CLASS IS OVER~ The book was hardly used - we mostly used journal articles and did a program evaluation as a project.
I know it's kind of lame to review your textbooks, but a book is a book right? Anyhoo, this book is amazing. It's clear, minimizes jargon, and is sectioned off in a neat way (definitions for terms are provided at the end of each chapter plus real-life examples). Great book.

I am still reading but so far, there is a lot from evaluating programs within the organization to see if programs and project are feasible and achieving objectives. if not evaluation will recommend alternative strategies to help move projects forward.
I hate school!

As an evaluation book, I suppose it was alright. Not exactly thrilling, but easy to read.
