Reviews

'In a provocative and imaginative review of multiple traditions and paradigms, Jon F. Wergin builds a convincing case that deep learning - constantly challenging our existing ways of thinking and being - is a survival necessity of adult life. Through a skillful weaving of personal examples with theoretical analysis, he shows how this mindset can be practiced in a way that inspires others.' Stephen Brookfield, John Ireland Endowed Chair, University of St. Thomas, Minnesota
