"Michael Allen nails it. This rework of classic is itself, an instant classic. He reminds us that creating Meaningful, Memorable, and Motivational learning experiences is hard but critically important work. He presents tangible, accessible and highly impactful guidance for anyone designing instruction and crafts a stunning defense against those who want to create instruction by ‘taking the easy way out.’"
