This book is organised in four Parts: The Action Learning and Action Research Association (ALARA); The Learning conference; Applications and case studies; Reflections on ALARA and its learning conferences. The reason I am reviewing this book in EJOLTS is for the same reason that I reviewed the Taylor and Luitel’s book on Transformative Learning. It is to encourage Living Theory researchers to engage in educational conversations with the contributors to the book. I am thinking of engagements in which, as Living Theory researchers, we draw insights from the contributors into our own learning and share ideas from our livingeducational- theories in ways that can enhance each others’ understandings of Living Theory research as a global social movement with values that carry hope for the flourishing of humanity.
