Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(1), 80–81. Reviews the book, Utilization-focused evaluation by Michael Quinn Patton (1978). Patton has written an informed, well-reasoned guide to the realities of evaluation research. The surprising thing is that this book could be the basic text in courses on evaluation, research or methodology or organizational theory. This is a perfect document to stimulate and focus a discussion of what it really means to give psychology away as if anyone wanted it. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
