    Robert Chambers is one of my favorite thinkers, the Wendell Berry of international development He is a slow thought listener, a feminist anti colonial centerer of marginalized and poor and vulnerable people, an uplifter of quiet voices in the back of the room He tinkers with facilitation and methodology to find ways to bring diverse people to engage with diverse ideas I gave my dog eared and underlined copy away to people I hope will read and pass it on Unfortunately that means I don t have Robert Chambers is one of my favorite thinkers, the Wendell Berry of international development He is a slow thought listener, a feminist anti colonial centerer of marginalized and poor and vulnerable people, an uplifter of quiet voices in the back of the room He tinkers with facilitation and methodology to find ways to bring diverse people to engage with diverse ideas I gave my dog eared and underlined copy away to people I hope will read and pass it on Unfortunately that means I don t have it with me to quote and summarize, some year plus since I read it In this book, Chambers tries to summarize the main principles of a few decades of participatory methodologies for community and agriculture research and action I remember this as a big book, that had me shouting yes and scribbling yes in margins this, this, this I ll have to find it and read it again, write out the principles for reference this time.I read this at just the right moment of life I found Paolo Freire when I was writing workshop scripts with facilitators, and Chambers came to me when I was helping lead them in villages Thank you, universe, for the serendipitous call to pick up the volumes kicking around at the moments they re ready to be used
