"I find the Power Equity Group (PEG) lab, upon which this book is based, to be a profound experience. Personal and professional learning are blended. I encourage teachers, consultants, coaches, and anyone who works with people to experience a PEG lab in order to more clearly understand the value of PEG theory. They will be better prepared to support clients as they respond to contemporary diversity issues."
