    It is a good book. Very detailed of the benefits of the mediation process and outcomes you can expect from the process. Very good book for a student or anyone who desires to understand the mediation process.

    Fairly fast shipping. I was in a hurry to get the book, but it did come in the time window they said. The book was a good read. It had a lot of examples as to how to do transformative mediation.

    Was an ok read, but not too much by way of real experience. Easy to read, but not very gripping.
