good overview, aimed at the very beginner of workshops. Also the more experienced facilitator can review his way of working and take in some good refreshers and pointers. A lot of attention is given to off-the-shelf activities. Seems that people want to be entertained.

I think I shall probably read this again, more carefully, skipping the bit

Comprehensive with a lot of practical advice. It'll make you consider a bunch of aspects of your workshops that you may not have actively thought about before.

While I don't necessarily think sending clients on a treasure hunt is professionally appropriate for me, I do think there's a whole spectrum from boring to over the top playfull. I could stand to move a little more towards playfull.

One point of improvement: when using to concepts like "brain gym" and saying they are so important that they
