This is the third edition off the classic book for motivating adult learners in any educational or training setting. The research referenced material in the book has been updated to reflect current knowledge in the field of adult motivation, learning, and cultural studies. In addition, the book integrates a neuroscientific perspective of adult motivation and learning throughout its contents. A biological understanding of adult learning is the newest and most compelling area of study in adult education today. This perspective will confirm many educational practices as well as enrich adult instruction with new ideas.
