Summary: Building on the feedback of those who know and love this much acclaimed classic, the seventh edition of The Adult Learner has been revised and updated to make it more accessible, more readable and more relevant to the understanding and practice of adult education.

Leading authorities on adult education and training, Elwood "Ed" Holton and Richard Swanson, have built on the work and writing of the late, great Malcolm Knowles to refresh this perenni moreal text for a new generation of adult learning students and practitioners.

Divided into three sections, the first part of The Adult Learner contains the classic Knowles chapters that describe the roots and principles of andragogy, with new chapter outlines, learning objectives and careful edits to the original content to simplify the essential theory. The second part focuses on the advancements in adult learning, with each chapter updated to reflect modern theories and practices that that draw upon and complement andragogy. Part three has been dramatically overhauled to replace the selected readings from previous editions with articles on andragogy in practice from around the world.

The Adult Learner is essential reading for adult learning practitioners, training managers and human resource professionals. It is also an indispensable text for students taking adult learning modules within adult education, teacher training courses and human resource management programmes.

* Provides a theoretical framework for understanding adult learning issues both in teaching and workplace environments
* Essential reading for a wide audience of practitioners and students in the field of adult learning and human resource development
* Incorporates Knowles' classic theories on adult learning alongside the latest advances in the principles and practice of adult education less
