    This book, as a whole, is an excellent introduction for readers (like myself) who were previously unaware of what exactly the Computer Clubhouse is, and the impact it has had on its young members worldwide.

The book presents the reader with not only an overview of the theory and practice of the Clubhouse model, but also with the editors’ and authors’ detailed research and evaluations of the creative work produced by Clubhouse members, as well as the impact of the activities that occur inside a typical Clubhouse. Perhaps the greatest praise I can give to the editors and authors of this volume is that reading it cover-to-cover made me want to visit a Clubhouse, and become an ‘honorary member’ for a day! I absolutely loved the fact that the voices that are really at the core of any Clubhouse, the voices of its many young members (and mentors and coordinators as well), were skillfully interwoven throughout the majority of the book. Reading direct quotes from members who have experienced the power of the Clubhouse learning model drives home the impact of such a place in the lives of urban, minority, or disadvantaged young people worldwide. The book will appeal not only to educational researchers and techies, but also to coordinators of after-school programs and educators both in and out of the classroom, as there are many lessons to be taken from the Clubhouse’s constructionist, creative approach to learning.
