Also covered are recently developed evaluation standards; and a new emphasis on ongoing program monitoring in evaluation.

I would have to say that this book is aimed at people who currently have a good understanding and experience of evaluation. I do not believe that its for introductory study but could be a good tool forthose wishing to evaulate their current methods or introduce something new
