The American Society for Training & Development (ASTD) announces that the second edition of its all-time best-selling book, "Telling Ain’t Training" is now available.

When the first edition of "Telling Ain’t Training" was published in 2002, the practical, learner-focused book quickly became a favorite with learning and development professionals, as well as school teachers, parents, professors, and anyone else who trains, educates, or instructs. Chockfull of myth-busting research and ready-to-use tools, always delivered in a lighthearted and entertaining style, "Telling Ain’t Training" set new standards for the training industry.

This long-awaited new edition has been updated, expanded and enhanced to reflect almost a decade of progress. Fans of "Telling Ain’t Training" will be relieved to find that its lively, user-friendly tone has been carefully preserved. In fact, this is a book that faithfully practices what it preaches, engaging the reader from page one and immediately involving them in the first of many try-it-yourself exercises in learning.

This substantially heftier edition covers everything a trainer needs to know to be better, plus:

  •     Extensive new chapters covering technology and e-learning
  •     More methods for creating terrific learner-centered training sessions
  •     Expanded evidence and research to support its approach to adult learning
  •     Ways to retrofit existing training programs and materials
  •     In-depth explanations of how the basic principles of adult learning apply
  •     An extensive index for easy reference
