Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Although this book didn't catch my interest by the cover alone, the content was quite interesting especially for someone who is a new leader or someone who would be involved with public speaking or managing meetings of any kind. Whether the meeting would be a small group of close knit people or a large group of those who are virtually strangers, there is plenty of advice contained in this book to help along the way. The book discusses so many aspects to any particular meeting including different topics such as why rules of order are important and in which situations they may be used and should be used. Other topics include how to start a meeting, how to come to a decision, meeting behavior and also voting on something the correct way. Over all, this book is great for someone looking for advice on how to perform, conduct or run a meeting of any kind. For someone who has active experience a lot of the information may be common sense and methods they are already aware of or already using. The author did a great job of outlining the basics. I received this product at no charge in exchange for an unbiased and honest review.
