“The writing is both highly personable and also very specific about techniques and attitudes students may take on as they experiment with membership leadership. I think my students will like it and will use it to engage even more fully with the experiential group. It most certainly fills a niche that needed filling.”
—Adam L. Hill, Sonoma State University
