"The narrative is peppered with practical ideas. The authors not only tell about Collaborative Inquiry, they show how it works through their prose and examples. It is this coherence and epistemological consistency that gives the book its strength. Of particular benefit are the examples from the various fields." -- Martha L.P. MacLeod
