101 Ways to Make Training Active
Increase Learning - Train Actively!
As a professional trainer and coach I know my subjects well. That's my problem! It's too easy to stand up and lecture. The trick is to involve participants in meaningful ways. "101 Ways to Make Training Active" is just the ticket. Silberman begins with 20 "top 10" lists of training tips. For example, "Ten assignments to give learning partners" and "Ten suggestions for activating a lecture" ...
The Bible Unearthed: Archaeology's New Vision of Ancient Isreal and the Origin of Sacred Texts
Free Press, 2002
Super informative, well-written, and logically put together. Blows the Old Testament myths right out of the water by way of archaeological evidence--or lack thereof. If you had the sneaking suspicion that much of the Bible was imaginative story-telling, this book will confirm your suspicions; not with rhetoric, but actual proof. And it not only gives you the how, but the why. There's a reason ...
Active Training: A Handbook of Techniques, Designs, Case Examples, and Tips (Active Training Series)
Activate Your Training
Mel Silberman is the master of active training. Just skimming his book gave me a handful of new ideas I applied to my training.

Lecture, however, is too often the default methodology. In some ways ...

The Insomnia Workbook: A Comprehensive Guide to Getting the Sleep You Need
New Harbinger Pubns
Amazing and useful resource for improving your sleep
I recently read "the insomnia workbook" by Dr. Stephanie Silberman as someone with sleep difficulties but not necessarily insomnia.

The Brain That Changes Itself: Stories of Personal Triumph from the Frontiers of Brain Science (James H. ...
My number one book!
This is one of my two favorite books. I am a vocational rehabilitation counselor and feel that the book has taught me things I didn't know about what is possible for my consumers with a head injury or stroke. Also, I think it is a good book for teachers or parents, as it explains why learning, practicing, imagining etc. are good for children. All the research that has been done is very ...
David and Solomon: In Search of the Bible's Sacred Kings and the Roots of the Western Tradition
Free Press, 2006
An enlightened treatment of two major biblical figures
It is so refreshing to read a book like this! For too long, biblical romantics have fantasized that archaeology would `verify' the history constructed by the biblical text itself; the narrative account. More recently, "revisionists" have argued that the biblical text is so divorced from history so as to be nothing more than an ideologically grounded fiction! Finkelstein and Silberman show, ...

A good compendium of intervention recipes. Lots of team activities. I have found a number of these available on the web, but this does compile them together. No theory, just recipes. You should already have a concept of your OD strategy, then use this as a reference.

A Family Haggadah II (Passover)
Shoshana, Dr. Silberman
Colorful, clear journey through the Seder
My husband and I host a seder each year for a group of about 30 to 40 people. This year (2010), we used "A Family Haggadah II" for the first time. I found it very enjoyable and helpful. "Seder" means "order," and a good Haggadah is essential for following the order of Passover night. The clear illustrations of the Seder Plate were helpful for setting up our tables. Then we went around the ...
