Finally, a book of case studies written by practitioners for practitioners about their experiences applying Appreciative Inquiry!
This book contains case studies with rich detail on how the authors applied Appreciative Inquiry theory to their client's situation. They share their thoughts and lessons on how it worked and what they learned. Written in a simple style with lots of examples, this is the book you've been waiting for.
The case studies are still fresh and useful for all levels of practitioners. They are easy to read and have a great deal of detail. Sections include case studies, community application cases, application of theory, theory and resource. 23 authors contributed including an introduction by David Cooperrider. This is a must have for anyone interested in the art of Appreciative Inquiry.

What They're Saying
"It is rare that we would describe a business book as beautiful, but this one truly is. Not only is the artwork subtle and well integrated to contribute to the physical beauty of this book, there is beauty in each story or lesson. You will find well written, detailed case studies on the application and success of Appreciative Inquiry in settings ranging from schools to communities to entire nations. The how-do portions of the book are powerfully written yet easy to understand (in contrast to some of the more academic works on this subject).
My favorite 'lesson' comes from Father Greg Banaga and relates the principles of AI to the teachings in the Bible. Just one example of the uplifting nature of this book and the ennate quality of the Appreciative Inquiry Process. Buy it for its practical, informative text, love it for its depth and beauty." Bob New
