Both of Mark’s books have a ton of activity ideas which will help you achieve the most with the least. Take a look, you’ll be pleased you did.
– Karl Rohnke, author & adventure programmer

It was amazing to put your book into practice – the improvement in my facilitation with groups was really evident.
– Clint, camp leader

Mark has really captured a truck-load of wisdom and placed it into this great resource that should be in every facilitator’s tool-kit.
– Michael, training consultant

Since adding No Props to our library collection, it is always the first book students grab and is by far the most popular.
– Andrew, outdoor recreation lecturer

The program staff went crazy for the No Props books we gave them. Most of them wouldn’t let them out of their sight for the week they were on camp.
– Ang, community development officer

I now have so many games up my sleeve, I can whip them out at any time. Thank you.
– Pat, outdoor educator

I love your book. I have had endless, glowing feedback from my colleagues regarding the ice-breakers and warm-up activities I’ve used.
– Barb, teacher
