Quinn takes on one popular myth after another and breaks them down in a straightforward, no-nonsense format. This book is great for the new practitioner trying to separate wheat from chaff or the experienced practitioner seeking to win challenges with well-meaning stakeholders and SMEs - or bar fights.

Use the concise and engaging information in Clark Quinn's new book to move beyond the myths, fads, and folklore that hold us and our organizations back. One of the best benefits is learning how to analyze others' learning, training, and outcomes claims. So important.

Millennials, Goldfish & Other Training Misconceptions is a tremendous contribution to assist in the necessary move toward evidence-based practice for L&D practitioners and their clients. Clark Quinn not only addresses the prevailing myths, superstitions, and misconceptions in the field today with what the research says, but also provides excellent guidance for what to do instead.
